Monmouth's academics—including majors like political science, communications, homeland security, business, and more-can easily be linked with world-class learning experiences in New York City and other nearby major urban areas. Students interested in coastal environmental studies can focus on biological, chemical, and physical sciences, together with environmental policy and natural resource conservation and management.
The University is also close to many technology firms, financial institutions, and a business-industrial sector that provides both employment possibilities for graduates and opportunities for undergraduates to gain experience.
Other academic opportunities include a software engineering program that is only one of twenty-two accredited programs in the United States, a music industry program that interfaces with industry professionals in and out of the classroom, and a marine and environmental biology and policy program that benefits from the University's proximity to costal waterways.
While preparing students for successful careers in leadership roles, Monmouth University believes that a major goal of higher education is to help students develop values. These include senses of citizenship and social responsibility that enable graduates to contribute actively to the societies in which they live. Academic programs and personal development opportunities at Monmouth prepare students to take the lead in an increasingly complex, multicultural world. These opportunities--combined with the myriad of art exhibits, concerts, lectures, and sightseeing trips planned each year--provide students with shared experiences outside the classroom to match the ones they receive inside.
Most of the professors at Monmouth "really care about student success" and "are friendly and easily accessible outside the classroom," though many students say there is a contingent that phones in their lectures. "I've had professors that are really hands-on and stray from the typical slideshow and…do in-class presentations, while I've had other professors read off the PowerPoint the whole time," says a senior.
Due to the small class sizes, "it's difficult to go into a classroom unnoticed," so "teachers are able to focus on you and help." Additionally, "[students] aren't lost in a crowd" and "Monmouth really tries to create a community-feel among all the students." For those needing extra help, there is "a wonderful Center for Student Services in which a tutor can be reached, a writing center to help with papers, [and] a math center." "I enjoy almost all of my classes and love the relaxed nature of the university as a whole," says a student.
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
