Flexibility & Academic Support
With online, evening and accelerated courses, Centenary students have the flexibility to build their studies around their lives. Our diverse student body thrives in a demanding, yet collaborative learning environment. With a 17 to 1 student to faculty ratio, our professors know their students. They provide the individualized attention needed to ensure success — from academic support to career development, including internships with some of New Jersey’s top employers.
We Value Service
Centenary also upholds a tradition of promoting service to others as a critical component of higher education — a core principle since our founding in 1867 by the Newark Conference of the United Methodist Church. We develop professionals that employers desire, and leaders that communities need.
