Apple Distinguished School
Seton Hill has been an Apple Distinguished School for more than a decade, due to the strength of our innovative Mobile Learning at the Hill Program. Here, all full-time traditional undergrads are provided with MacBook Air laptops. Our campus infrastructure supports all types of online learning and discovery.
Boyle Health Sciences Center
Seton Hill’s new Boyle Health Sciences Center provides up-to-the-moment technology and resources throughout its clinical and research classrooms and labs.
Because laboratory courses at Seton Hill are small, you will do more than just watch experiments - you will perform them yourself, using the same sophisticated facilities and equipment that your professors use.
Anatomage Tables & Human Anatomy Lab
Anatomage tables allow you to take a digital, interactive look into the systems that make up the human body, from muscular and skeletal systems to nerve pathways. This learning is supported by hands-on experiences in our Human Anatomy Lab.
Research & Internship Opportunities
As an upperclassman, you’ll have the opportunity to take part in ongoing research, both here on campus and through research internships at universities and institutions across the country.
