College of Saint Elizabeth

Celebrating 120 Years of Learning

The College of Saint Elizabeth (CSE) is a community of learning in the Catholic liberal arts tradition for students of diverse ages, backgrounds and cultures focused on engaged learning for leadership in service to others.

Preparing responsible leaders for meaningful lives in a changing world has been CSE’s hallmark since we were founded 120 years ago. We accomplish this by bringing motivated students together with outstanding teachers in small classes and a highly communal student-centered culture emphasizing individualized attention.

CSE is ranked third among private schools in New Jersey on Money magazine’s “Best Colleges in 2018” list. U.S. News & World Report lists CSE among “Best Ethnic Diversity” colleges, and Washington Monthly named CSE among the top 100 schools on both “Best Master’s Universities” (#98 out of 695 nationwide) and “Best Bang for the Buck – North” (#38 out of 400 in Northeast region).

Established by the Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth, CSE opened its doors on September 11, 1899 with six students, making it New Jersey’s first four-year Catholic college for women. The co-educational continuing studies program began in 1978 and CSE has been fully co-educational since 2016. From its beginning, CSE is continuously committed to providing a superior educational experience that is affordable.

In addition to our traditional four-year undergraduate program, CSE offers a variety of flexible evening, weekend and online continuing studies, graduate and professional certificate programs. Degree programs include our new four-year prelicensure BSN, Biology, Business, Counseling Psychology, Criminal Justice, Dietetic Internship, Education/Educational Leadership, Foods and Nutrition and Psychology. In fall 2019, we will welcome our first class in the new M.S. in Physician Assistant program.
