With approximately 1,000 undergraduates and a 12-to-1 student-to-teacher ratio, students acquire in-depth knowledge of the humanities and their respective fields, while making meaningful connections with professors and peers.

At Chestnut Hill, undergraduate students can choose from over 35 major programs ranging from education, psychology, music, and human services to business, biology, forensic sciences, criminal justice and more. Students also have the option to participate in several accelerated master's programs and dual degree partnerships.

Chestnut Hill College Location: A City School in a Suburban Setting

Located in the Chestnut Hill section of Philadelphia, Chestnut Hill College is bound by the wooded hills of Fairmount Park, yet only a 30-minute trip by train or car to downtown Philadelphia.

The Main Campus and Sugarloaf Campus combined boast 75-acres of lush greenery and stunning French Gothic architecture, where students can find a quiet place to study, an engaging campus culture, and multiple modes of transportation downtown.

The advantages of attending college in Philadelphia are abundant. As one of the nation's major corporate centers and the fourth largest media market in the United States, Philadelphia offers a wealth of professional opportunities. Philadelphia is also home to some of the country's most renowned historical sites as well as a wide variety of dining, cultural, and sporting events. Additionally, the seventy colleges, universities, and medical schools in the area offer students ample social opportunities.

Opportunities for Leadership and Engagement: Athletics and Student Life

Extracurricular involvement is a major component of the learning process at Chestnut Hill College. Students graduate with a co-curricular transcript which serves as an official record of "out of classroom" learning, growth and contributions during a student's college career.

Students can get involved through many capacities. Chestnut Hill College sponsors 17 varsity NCAA Division II intercollegiate sports teams that compete in the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC). Additionally, more than 30 clubs and organizations are available to students, including Quidditch, The Video Production Club, Student Government Association, a number of performance and service based organizations and more.

Career Development Services Offered to Students and Alumni

The Office of Career Development at Chestnut Hill College provides career counseling, resume critiques, mock interviews, alumni mentoring, job fairs and job listings. Every student is required to graduate with Career Connections credit. This credit can be obtained through an internship, a professional experience, or a semester long course. This dedication to career development ensures that Chestnut Hill College graduates leave fully prepared to launch their professional careers.
