Situated on a beautiful landscaped campus in a vibrant urban community, New Jersey City University (NJCU) provides top-quality education to approximately 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. It is a place to think 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 opportunities for all on campus, around the state, and abroad.
NJCU offers 43 undergraduate and 28 graduate degree programs, and two outstanding doctoral programs: the D.Sc. Program in Civil Security Leadership, Management and Policy, and the Ed.D. in Educational Technology Leadership Program.
In September 2017, the NJCU School of Business will offer a new master of science degree in Business Analytics and Data Science at its Harborside Plaza 2 location in the heart of New Jersey’s financial district on the Jersey City waterfront.
NJCU offers a wide array of courses at Communiversity on the campus of Brookdale Community College in Wall Township.
NJCU provides a solid 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 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 more than doubled its residence capacity in September 2016 with the opening of the 425-bed West Campus Village Residence Hall. Construction also began on the University Place development, a $350 million redevelopment project which will greatly enhance Jersey City’s west side, have an enormous impact, and will provide students, faculty and neighbors with a welcoming place to live, work, dine, and shop in this vibrant urban community.
