The rich history of Georgian Court University spans back more than a century and reaches confidently toward the future with clear purpose and inspired intent. Founded in 1908 by the Sisters of Mercy of New Jersey, Georgian Court University offers a rich academic experience from a unique perspective. A Roman Catholic university, Georgian Court encourages all members of its university community not only to take note of the social problems in their communities and the world, but also to take action and remedy them.

Georgian Court University offers a women’s day university and coeducational evening and graduate programs. Their individual attention and faculty-to-student ratio of 15:1 are just some of the factors that have led to our No. 1 ranking in our tier for freshman retention rate in U.S. News and World Report’s Best Universities issue. Twenty-six undergraduate majors and 10 graduate programs give students ample choice among liberal arts and professionals. To help communities deal with shortages of key personnel—teachers and nurses—Georgian Court University has accelerated elementary and secondary education programs and a post-baccalaureate program in nursing, offered in concert with another university and four area hospitals.

Georgian Court University, a National Historic Landmark, resonates with the vivid legacy of the past and the determined appropriation of the future.
