William J Maxwell / College of Arts & Sciences

The William J. Maxwell College of Arts and Sciences is the heart of New Jersey City University. We help students reach their career goals through an intellectually rigorous education that cultivates an appreciation for lifelong learning.

Our urban campus is minutes from New York City via public transportation, offering students easy access to expand upon their classroom education in one of the world’s most culturally rich metropolitan areas. We even offer a Campus without Borders program that encourages students to take advantage of the cultural and educational experiences in the area. There is truly no better locale from which to study the arts, humanities, sciences and social sciences.

You can choose a degree program from one of our academic departments, or select the General Studies Program that allows you to work with faculty to choose the coursework that’s right for your interests and career goals.

An arts and sciences education shapes graduates who are successful in the workplace as critical thinkers and problem-solvers who value diversity of thought and ideas. The students who choose our college are thoughtful, curious, and eager to learn, and their inquisitiveness is matched by our dedicated faculty.

The College of Arts and Sciences faculty members are committed to creating an educational experience that celebrates the diversity of our students’ strengths, backgrounds and aspirations. We take a student-centered approach to teaching and learning by developing engaging, interactive coursework and recruiting faculty who are passionate about teaching. Traditional and non-traditional students will feel at home in our inclusive, welcoming learning environment.
