Coeducational Continuing Studies at the College of Saint Elizabeth

The College of Saint Elizabeth has developed a coeducational continuing studies program for adult learners, men and women who are aged 23 or older and are high school graduates or have attained high school equivalency diplomas. The college offers coeducational evening, weekend, and online undergraduate programs that lead to bachelor's degrees.

The college also offers undergraduate day programs for adult women.

A Flexible, Supportive Program

Students in the continuing studies program may pursue either part-time or full-time paths. Courses specifically designed to meet the needs of the continuing studies students meet once a week in 7-week sessions for approximately 3.5 hours each time. While traditional students declare majors at the College of Saint Elizabeth during their 2nd semesters of their sophomore years, continuing studies students may do so after completing approximately 48 credits.

Application and Transfer Procedures for Continuing Studies

Applicants for admission to the College of Saint Elizabeth's continuing studies program should fill out the applications with application fees and submit official high school transcripts and official transcripts from any colleges previously attended. An enrollment specialist then meets with the applying student to review the program , evaluate possible transfer credits, and register the students.

Students may transfer up to 96 credits. They are admitted to the program for summer, fall, or spring semesters.

Students who have previous grade point averages below 2.0 are admitted as non-matriculated, but are matriculated after taking 2 courses or 6 credits with a GPA at or above 2.0.

An Historic College with a Commitment to Community and Achievement

Founded in 1899 by the Sisters of Charity, the College of Saint Elizabeth (CSE) became New York state's first 4-year Catholic women's college. The college today is still committed to social responsibility, community service, and the promotion of women as full partners within society.

The College of Saint Elizabeth offers 25 undergraduate degrees in education, business, nursing and health, the liberal arts and sciences, and other fields. The college also has 10 master's degree programs and a doctoral program in education leadership as well as professional certificates and certifications. Students can prepare for ministry through the college's Center for Ministry and Spirituality.

The College of Saint Elizabeth is located in historical Morris County on a picturesque 200-acre campus. It is less than an hour's train ride from New York City, where students have completed internships with the Today Show and HBO and explored other unique opportunities.

Health and Wellness Studies

The College of Saint Elizabeth offers degrees in nursing, allied health studies, health care management, and foods and nutrition. The college partners with regional health providers, such as Valley Health Systems, St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center, Atlantic Health System, Trinitas Hospital, and Novartis, to provide students with the experience and training they need to succeed in the fast-growing fields of health care.

Human and Social Development

The College of Saint Elizabeth offers majors in social and behavior sciences in areas such as psychology, sociology, women's studies, and justice studies, as well as pre-professional programs in education and business administration and management. CSE students benefit from the college's emphasis on practicum programs and internships with schools, corporations, and non-profits.

In addition, both undergraduate and graduate students have presented their research at conferences such as the Eastern Sociological Society, the New Jersey Consortium of Women and Gender Studies, and the Nation Council of Teachers of English.

Culture and Humanities

Within culture and humanities, the College of Saint Elizabeth offers majors in American studies, art, communication, English, history and political science, music, philosophy and theology, and world cultures and languages.

Students learn from faculty members who are dedicated teachers and active participants in their fields. Professor Lisa Mastrangelo of English and women's studies, for example, recently published her new book, "Writing a Progressive Past: Women Teaching and Writing in the Progressive Era."

The College of Saint Elizabeth also provides undergraduate majors in chemistry and biochemistry, biology, and mathematics and computer science. Recent graduates of these programs have gone on to pursue advanced degrees at Yale University, Rutgers, Purdue, Cornell, Fordham, Georgetown, and other prestigious institutes of higher learning.

In addition, those students with professional career goals have completed internships with prominent international companies such as Merck, Goldman Sachs, UBS Financial Services, and L'Oreal.

A Thriving Center of Service-Learning and Community Outreach

The College of Saint Elizabeth is home to 4 centers that affirm its commitment to Catholic social teaching and solidarity with the poor. These include the Center for Catholic Women's History, the Holocaust Education Resource Center, the Center for Volunteerism and Service-Learning, and the Center for Ministry and Spirituality.

CSE students provided an estimated 29,500 hours of service, collected over 2,500 pounds of food for the needy, raised more than $32,000 for charities, and worked with 90 social service organizations, schools, and non-profits.
