Montclair State University offers countless programs and unlimited opportunities designed to help students achieve their most ambitious goals – and fall is the perfect time to plan a campus visit and see all that is available for future Red Hawks.
A research doctoral institution ranked in the top tier of the nation’s universities, Montclair State combines the extensive resources of a large university with the supportive, personal environment of a small college.
“When we talk about students who are Red Hawk Ready, we’re talking about students who are prepared to soak up all that Montclair State has to offer,” says Director of Undergraduate Admissions Jeffrey Indiveri-Gant. “They know that unique experiences and opportunities – academic, social and professional – are right here ready and waiting for you to explore.”
The vibrant campus community is home to a world-class faculty and some of the most advanced learning facilities in the country – including the new School of Communication and Media building, which is the most technologically advanced broadcast and media production facility at any university in the country.
Dynamic academic programs prepare undergraduate students for professional success. The innovative Academic Program Finder lets students quickly access and compare the details of more than 300 dynamic majors, minors and certificate programs in everything from African-American Studies and Biochemistry to Spanish and Visual Arts – so they can align their interests with possible fields of study. Invaluable extracurricular programs, hands-on internships and other experiential learning and networking opportunities help them tap into their boundless potential – and realize their dreams. “You just have to dive in and take advantage of all that awaits you in Red Hawk Country,” advises Indiveri-Gant.
The University is equally committed to preparing master’s and doctoral degree candidates for professional achievement. More than 100 degree, certificate and certification programs – including 20 dual bachelor‘s/master’s degree programs, as well as a new PhD in Clinical Psychology and new MS in Business Analytics – equip students with the knowledge and skills that translate into career success. Keeping the needs of working professionals in mind, many graduate programs offer flexible, convenient online and hybrid options.
“It’s an exciting time for students seeking post-baccalaureate credentials, but with that excitement comes the challenge of choice – both in credentialing and delivery method,” notes Graduate School Dean Joan Ficke. “In The Graduate School, we provide academically sound and career-ready learning opportunities, through curricular innovation and through an array of alternative and user-friendly delivery methods for our programs. Whether delivering our programs through face-to-face, online or hybrid coursework, our goals remain the same: to prepare students with knowledge, skills and competencies that fuel their success, wherever their interests take them.”
