The Catholic identity of Seton Hill University is a distinguishing mark of the University today, as it has been since its founding by the Sisters of Charity in 1885.


Located in southwestern Pennsylvania’s Laurel Highlands (yet only 35 miles from Pittsburgh), Seton Hill educates its more than 2000 students to “think and act critically, creatively and ethically as productive members of society committed to transforming the world.”


The faith vision permeates all that Seton Hill does. It is a vision of life grounded in the biblical experience of God in relation to humanity and of God's intentions for all of creation.

At the theological level, this vision affirms that God is gracious creator and loving savior, that God has become present personally in history in the person of Jesus of Nazareth, and that the Spirit of God continues to live in the Church, guiding it to its final destiny with God.


Every summer, Seton Hill University students complete internships. CareerWorks noted four students who participated in exciting internship experiences.
