Campus Profile

VIEW SLIDESHOW

Just ten miles west of Manhattan, Saint Peter’s University is a private, Jesuit institution offering more than 50 undergraduate majors as well as master’s degree and doctorate programs. Basing its programs on the Jesuit tradition of personal care for each student, Saint Peter’s provides a unique opportunity to combine rigorous academics with a community service orientation.

With historic Ellis Island within its borders, Jersey City was the first stop for many new arrivals to the United States. In that tradition, you’ll find the city is the perfect place to start exploring America’s diverse cultures and the amazing sights and sounds of nearby New York City!
