About Caldwell

About Caldwell College Stained Glass PictureA CATHOLIC LIBERAL ARTS EDUCATION

At the core of a Caldwell College education is our liberal arts curriculum, designed to guide students to develop critical thinking skills, appreciate diverse cultures, and acquire a moral and civic awareness. Students develop the whole self as they absorb learning through our liberal arts core: the humanities; the physical and biological sciences, and mathematics; and the social sciences.

The knowledge, intellectual skills, sensitivities and creativity you acquire transcend any major of study and profession for a lifetime of growth.

BEST LOCATION AROUND

Located in the picturesque town of Caldwell, New Jersey. Recently, Caldwell was voted the third best place to live in all of New Jersey by New Jersey Monthly Magazine. Offering a stunning campus setting, Caldwell College is only a short walk from town, where students find shops, coffee houses, restaurants, a movie theatre, and anything a student could want.

Another advantage to Caldwell College’s location is its proximity to New York City, just 20 minutes away. Our students use New York City as another classroom, where they can engage in internships and shadowing opportunities, experience cultural events, or shop or catch a game!

Hopping on a bus takes you to lots of great sites in New Jersey, too. A short ride offers a great selection, from the Meadowlands arena to the Prudential Center, and, in just an hour, the Jersey shore.

No matter your interest, Caldwell College offers you experiences beyond the classroom.

ACADEMIC PROGRAMS

The college’s most popular offerings include undergraduate degrees in business, psychology, and education. Caldwell offers 25 undergraduate degrees and 33 graduate and certificate programs, including our doctoral program in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), the first in New Jersey.

Caldwell is a leader in autism education, a scientific discipline known to help children with autism spectrum disorders. The College’s state-of-the-art autism center benefits children with autism and their families in New Jersey.

To better focus on the desire to excel in the teaching of math and science, Caldwell College used nearly $2 million in federal grants to help establish the Center for Excellence for Teaching. The college renovated the biology, physics, and chemistry labs, and expanded classroom technology resources across the campus. The Center serves as a regional hub to implement innovative teacher preparation programs, emphasizing the effective use of classroom technology and the refinement of math and science training, and special education teacher training, including the development of programs for disadvantaged students.
