School Details

In 1939, the private, not-for-profit Caldwell College opened its doors in Caldwell, New Jersey, providing post-secondary educational opportunities for women. Founded on Catholic values and traditions, the college continued growing. By the fall of 1986, Caldwell College allowed the entrance of male students. The College has since expanded with the addition of Master’s degree programs, and more recently, the institution began awarding a Ph.D. in Applied Behavior Analysis. In addition to the Ph.D. program, Caldwell College supports 29 undergraduate degrees and 22 graduate programs of study, and is most noted for degrees in business, psychology, and education. Caldwell College has also entered a new chapter by sponsoring Power Degrees that allow students the opportunity to complete degree programs in accelerated formats. Today, approximately 2,300 students are enrolled at Caldwell College, and student-to-faculty ratio is 13:1.

Caldwell College is accredited by the Commission on Higher Education of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. Additionally, specific academic programs also have specialized accreditation, including select business programs by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs, the Teacher Preparation program by the Teacher Education Accreditation Council, and graduate programs in counseling by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Education Programs.
