Biographical / Historical

The School of Education and Human Services at Seton Hall University began as the Department of Education, a part of the College of Arts and Sciences, in the 1920's. The program started with a few courses in secondary school teacher preparation. Later the Department began offering a graduate degree, and when Seton Hall organized into a University in 1950, the program became the School of Education.

During the 1950's and 1960's the School experienced a great deal of growth, and operated both an Educational Services Center, which offered low-cost instruction to urban and suburban communities, and a Veteran's Administration counseling program. In the 1970's and early 1980's, enrollment dropped significantly, and the School used this time to re-structure many of its programs, becoming the College of Education and Human Services. Shortly after, the College began offering several doctoral programs.

In the 1990's, enrollment began to increase again, and the College continued to develop in both course/degree offerings and in service to the University and wider communities. The College also began to focus on education and technology, and in 1999 established the Professional Development School. In 2003, the Institute for Educational Leadership, Renewal and Research was developed. Throughout the 2000's, the College continued to advance in accreditation and expand degree programs and partnerships with outside institutions.
