New Jersey City University (NJCU) provides top-quality education to more than 8,200 students who reflect the dynamism of the university’s metropolitan Jersey City location. As the safest public university campus in New jersey and one of the most diverse in the nation, NJCU prepares students to be leaders in a global society within the comforts of an intimate community. Whether on a beautiful landscaped campus in a vibrant urban community or in the heart of New Jersey’s waterfront business district, students learn and grow by interacting with culturally and ethnically diverse classmates and faculty from countries worldwide. Students prepare for success by engaging in rigorous applied-learning experiences that include laboratory research, field studies, performances, exhibitions, studio work, cooperative education internships, community service, and study opport6unities for all on campus, around the state, and abroad.
NJCU offers 43 undergraduate and 28 graduate degree programs, and three doctoral programs. The NJCU School of Business now offers The Harvard Business School Credential of Readiness at NJCU (CORe), an online program that prepares entering graduate students with a non-business background for graduate studies in business. In September 2017, the NJCU School of Business began offering an M.S. in Business Analytics and Data Science.
NJCU, in partnership with Brookdale Community College, offers a wide array of bachelor’s degree completion programs for residents on the central and southern New Jersey coastline at BCC’s Wall Campus. NJCU continues to expand its program offerings in Monmouth County with Master of Science degrees and a Certificate Program in addition to its highly popular Accelerated Nursing Program.
NJCU provides an exceptional educational experience that helps prepare students for career success and keeps education affordable. Ten years after graduation, NJCU students earn 22 percent more than the national average income. Debt burden for NJCU graduates is in the lowest of the public four-year institutions in New Jersey. NJCU is the 54th percentile nationally for lifting students from the bottom 40 percent to the top 40 percent of earners in the nation as a result of their college experience.
NJCU held a ribbon-cutting ceremony in April 2018 for its fully-renovated and expanded Science Building which allows for the expansion of STEM studies and research capacity. The Science Building is equipped with 45 ultramodern teaching and research laboratories, a greenhouse, observatory, imaging center, cell cultural lab, bio-informatics lab, and Geographic Information Science lab.
Construction progresses on the $400 million University Place redevelopment project, which will greatly enhance Jersey City’s west side, have an enormous economic impact, and provide students, faculty and neighbors with a welcoming place to live, work, dine, and shop.
