Saint Elizabeth University (SEU) (formerly College of Saint Elizabeth, CSE) is a private Catholic, coeducational, four-year, liberal arts university in Morris Township, New Jersey. Portions of the campus are also in Florham Park.
SEU has 25 undergraduate majors, 16 master's degree programs and two doctoral programs (Psy.D. and Ed.D. with two tracks, K-12 leadership, and higher education leadership). The university also offers six combined degree programs, 10 dual degree programs and professional certificate programs in counseling, education, health care, management, ministry, nutrition and other fields.
The College of Saint Elizabeth was founded in 1899 by the Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth and was among the first Catholic colleges in the United States to award degrees to women. It is located in a complex which includes the order's motherhouse and convent, as well as a preparatory school for girls.
The college began transitioning into a co-educational institution, starting with the 2016 freshman intake. The final all-female class graduated in 2019. The institution was accorded university status by the New Jersey Department of Education as of July 1, 2020.
It is named for Elizabeth Ann Seton (1774–1821), who founded the Sisters of Charity and who, after her death, was canonized as the United States' first native-born saint. (Seton Hall University in New Jersey and Seton Hill University in Pennsylvania are also named after Elizabeth Ann Seton.)
Saint Elizabeth University is located on the campus of the Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth. The 200-acre (0.81 km2) wooded campus is home to the classical Greek amphitheater built into a hillside and the original dairy farm for the complex.
The Convent Station of NJ Transit, located on the campus of Saint Elizabeth University, provides rail transportation both east and west of Convent Station. The trains are the midtown direct line of the Morris & Essex Lines.
Saint Elizabeth University has eight buildings:
The classical Greek Theatre is used for concerts and performances. The Shakespeare Garden, completed in 1931, and a greenhouse, built in 1911 also sit on the campus.
Saint Elizabeth University teams participate as a member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association's Division III. The Eagles are a member of the Colonial States Athletic Conference (CSAC). Women's sports include basketball, cross country, soccer, softball, tennis and volleyball. Men's sports include baseball, basketball, cross country, soccer, tennis and volleyball.
