Internships Expanded

There’s nowhere better to study business. At Monmouth, your interest in finance comes alive on a global scale. New York City is the world’s best destination for learning about the present and future of every industry, and Monmouth offers you amazing opportunities to get hands-on experiences in every aspect of the business world.

Adventures Overflowing

Washington, D.C. Philadelphia. Asbury Park. There’s nowhere better than Monmouth to go … anywhere. Whatever your curiosity, this is the perfect place to chase it, because it’s all within your reach. A birthplace of music history. The headquarters of national politics. A historic city with international influence. And every corner of the globe. If you’re ready to explore, Monmouth is ready for you.

Laboratories Without Walls

There’s nowhere better than the ocean to study biology, climate adaptation, and coastal policy. At Monmouth, your passion for understanding the world gets transformed into real influence by faculty who create an immersive, hands-on experience—with nature as your classroom. Out there, the lessons you learn stick with you in a different kind of way, and you build the expertise that sets you up to shape legislation, chart new discoveries, and protect ecosystems for the long haul.


It’s easier to take risks, have courage, and step out into the world when you’re surrounded by a community that truly has your back. At Monmouth, we do.

This community is more than a place where you’ll build lifelong memories (although you’ll do plenty of that) and forge forever friendships (you’ll do that, too). It’s also a place that will set you up with real, provable skills that give you an edge for whatever comes next.

You’ll learn to lead because you launched a student group that addresses climate change. You’ll learn to care when The Big Event sends you and a group of peers to paint a community mural, visit with senior citizens, or cuddle foster dogs. You’ll learn to thrive from dedicated staff who are ready to support you at every step, whether you’re the first in your family to go to college or you’re navigating your applications for graduate school.

Picture yourself

  • Taking the train to the City for a Broadway show.
  • Catching your favorite band live in Asbury Park.
  • Curling up for a weekly movie in your residence hall.
  • Renting a beach-front house with friends your senior year.
  • Collaborating with student musicians, sound engineers, and artists at Blue Hawk Records.

Picture your life, dialed up.
That’s you, amplified at Monmouth.



Honor Societies

Clubs and Organizations

Fraternities and Sororities

There are so many ways to engage your curiosity and find your talents at Monmouth. We have more than 120 clubs and organizations, including opportunities to host a radio show, manage $300,000 of investments with the Hawk Capital Club, go behind the scenes of television production at the 24/7 campus network, win awards at the top-10-in-the-nation student newspaper, and scale a cliff with the Outdoors Club. Whatever you love—or want to learn to love—we’ll empower you to take what you learn in the classroom, put those skills to practice in a club or student group, and grow it into a profound accomplishment in a career and beyond.

Sean Gerhard ’21 found his passion at Monmouth—and the world took notice. His idea for a Star Wars-themed radio show on student-run WMCX was named “Most Innovative/Creative Program” at the 2021 Intercollegiate Broadcast System Media Awards.

Quote Mark
To be number one out of the entire country is an awesome feeling, WMCX gave me the opportunity to express my creativity like nothing else could have. My professors gave me constant encouragement and support. This has been one of my favorite experiences in my life.”

When you hear “EXPERIENTIAL learning,” maybe you picture a few group assignments here and there. That’s not what we mean.

At Monmouth, we integrate real-time skill-building directly into your learning. You can compete to win the Intercollegiate Real Estate Academic Competition, making a real estate development pitch to a room full of bank presidents and city planners. You can attend a reading and engage in discussion with a Poet Laureate of the United States through the Visiting Writers Series. You can try to fit a huge trophy in your carry-on when you fly home from London after your team wins the International Model United Nations competition. You can disrupt the growth of a brain tumor using the genetic sequences of RNA molecules directed against proteins involved in cancer.

When you bring your drive and determination to Monmouth, it will get magnified by the caliber of experiences you’ll be offered. Your professors will push beyond teaching you skills; they will usher you into the spotlight where those skills can shine—at the national conferences and competitions that our location makes so readily accessible.

By the time you graduate, you’ll have the kind of confidence—and the kind of resume—that comes from lived-out experiences. We don’t just set you up for success in the future. We let you start your success story today.


The Honors School offers exciting challenges and integrated support to high-achieving students. Here, you’re part of a community of leaders and thinkers, where dialogue about critical topics extends from the classroom to the residence hall. You’ll enjoy personalized mentoring from professors, additional scholarship opportunities, the chance to publish your thesis in a professional journal, and an inspiring community of driven and brilliant peers.

You discover anthropology on an archeological dig in Jamaica. You learn communications working on our 24/7 campus television network. You study history using sonar images of shipwrecks on a research vessel in the open water.

We offer all this because it will set you apart, and you leave with more than a diploma—you hone a skill set that gives you confidence, competence, and curiosity, and those things don’t ever go away. Whether it’s spearheading campus sustainability projects or creating a new student group to write poetry with local children, at Monmouth, you’ll find ample opportunity to stand out as a leader.


Because of a grant for student research, Catherine Melman-Kenny and Sabria Smith spent the summer on an entirely different shore: the Bahamas. Their project was to analyze how Hurricane Dorian affected communities there, compared to how Hurricane Sandy impacted New Jersey. Focusing on economics, policy, sustainability, and planning to determine how each location’s tourism economy was impacted, their research could help determine ways each tourism-based economy could be more resilient in an age of increased storms.

Monmouth athletics demand attention from the world, turning up every athlete’s performance and inspiring true excellence.

Our 24 NCAA Division I teams have won countless conference championships. Fans cheer from premier facilities like Kessler Stadium, OceanFirst Bank Center, and Hesse Field on The Great Lawn. Students are at the center of the competition, riding together in a fan bus to all the big games.

And student-athletes get more than their moment in the spotlight: they gain advocates who invest in their well-being and the depth of their education. From playing professionally, to coaching, to starting their own business, Monmouth equips every student-athlete to achieve well beyond their sport.

Miles Austin ’19

Miles Austin took a 10-year hiatus from being a student at Monmouth to embark on a career as a star player for the Dallas Cowboys. But at 33-years-old, after twice gracing the cover of Sports Illustrated, he returned to finish his degree in history and political science. “It feels like home,” he says.

Allie Wilson ’19

Allie Wilson, a three-time NCAA All-American in women’s track and field, took her talents from Monmouth to the 2021 Olympic trials in Eugene, Oregon. Achieving her personal best time for the 800-meter event, Allie’s sixth-place performance makes her the 23rd fastest in the world.


The spark of discovery in his students’ eyes is what keeps Professor Keith Dunton excited about his work. And for him, that spark happens before dawn, on the beach, fishing rod in hand.

Monmouth’s Marine and Environmental Biology and Policy students get to experience research from start to finish. It begins the moment they see the rod’s tip twitch in that tell-tale way, the moment they first spot a dorsal fin skim across the water. By the time their hands are gently pinning a four-foot shark to a stretcher, fitting it with a tracking device that will supply them with data for the rest of the summer, their lives have already changed forever.

Quote Mark
I never really had that hands-on experience—I was always just like, ‘I care about shark conservation.’ But now that I’ve actually physically touched the sharks, and brought them on land, and done research and collected data on them, it makes me care even more about them.”
B.S. in Marine and Environmental Biology and Policy
Biochemistry Laboratory Technician, Merck
Quote Mark
Working with the students is amazing; this one experience can really change the course of their career or life. From the pure excitement at seeing their first shark, to the next steps of collecting samples, tracking data, and analyzing our findings, it is really amazing to see students find their passion.”
Keith Dunton, PH.D.
Associate Professor of Biology
Monmouth doesn’t just offer excitement. We offer guides who know what to do with excitement so that it turns into effectiveness. Your question becomes a research hypothesis. Your interest turns into a networking meeting. Your idea becomes a research project that leads to your profession, and your life’s passion. With just 12 students for every brilliant professor and a generous open-door policy, you’ll get to know these cutting-edge minds as true mentors. They’re as interested in their fields as they are in you, and it will make all the difference in what you can become.

At Monmouth, you won’t just learn to take your own success up a notch. You’ll learn how your experience is connected to everyone else’s. That’s why we put such a focus on service, community engagement, and making substantive contributions to the world.

From your first year, service is built into your Monmouth experience. You can volunteer for Best Buddies Club, a student-run organization that assists students living with disabilities. Or participate in The Big Event, the single largest community service project that places 500 Monmouth Hawks throughout the community at 30 work sites. You could spend time in our Peace Corps Prep program. Or you could find yourself lending a hand at hurricane relief. And all of it will help form you as a professional.

At Monmouth, you’ll start to see how your passion and your ability can make an impact that’s far beyond you. Together, with intelligence and intention, even small acts can multiply into a world of difference.

Studying abroad changed my life. Living on my own in a foreign city invited me out of my comfort zone and let me discover such valuable skills beyond what I was learning in the classroom—time management, budgeting, and a love of new cultures.”

Our lasting and trusted relationships with big companies and powerful organizations in every field of study means that coming to Monmouth allows you to sit at tables of influence and spaces of innovation.

Sophia Lewin ’19 knows there’s a difference between imagining yourself pursuing a dream, and actually getting the chance to do it. At Monmouth, the coaching staff offered opportunities she wouldn’t have had anywhere else. It helped her do more than become fluent in football—it helped her make history, becoming the second woman ever to hold a coaching position in the NFL with the Buffalo Bills.

Quote Mark
I learned to believe in me. And I want to always be learning, growing, and becoming better at what I do. As a coach, whether on the field or off, that’s the attitude I hope to instill in players. I’m never going to tell someone they cannot do something they want to do.”
