Monmouth is a private, moderate-sized, coeducational, comprehensive University founded in 1933. It serves residential and commuter students in seven schools: the Wayne D. McMurray School of Humanities and Social Sciences; the School of Education; the Leon Hess Business School; the School of Science, Technology and Engineering; the Marjorie K. Unterberg School of Nursing and Health Studies; the Graduate School; and the Honors School.
Monmouth's campus is a five-minute drive from the Atlantic Ocean in West Long Branch, New Jersey, and is convenient to New York City and Philadelphia, as well as plentiful local attractions. The 153-acre campus features 53 buildings, including historic landmarks and state-of-the-art facilities.
Best of all, Monmouth offers an exceptional value. At Monmouth, students benefit from quality academic programs, small classes, professors who meet the highest standards for teaching and academic excellence, a magnificent campus, and state-of-the-art facilities. Plus, Monmouth is just the right size to provide the variety and choice of a comprehensive university combined with the individual attention typical of a small liberal arts college. Monmouth's convenient location, in the heart of a high-tech business region, provides cooperative and post-graduate employment opportunities for many Monmouth students.
Monmouth University affirms the inestimable worth and dignity of every individual, regardless of his or her condition in life. We affirm, further, the right of each person to develop to his or her full potential and to be judged on the basis of personal accomplishments. Finally, we believe that the achievement of full humanity is enhanced by the experience of the human family.
