Study with Outstanding Faculty

William Paterson University’s professors are a diverse group of nationally recognized teachers, scholars, artists, and mentors who bring a wide range of backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives to the classroom.

They are actively engaged in research and creative activity—writing books, publishing articles in prestigious academic journals, presenting their original research, serving as expert lecturers, performing, creating artwork, and serving their communities.

They give students a real-world perspective as they teach what they practice in their professions day to day. Our professors are recognized with awards and grants from such organizations as the Fulbright Council, the American Council of Learned Societies, the Guggenheim Foundation, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the National Institutes of Health, and the National Science Foundation, among others.

With small classes and accessible professors, you’ll have the opportunity to work with faculty on research, travel with them to conferences, participate in artistic endeavors, and receive the personal attention and expert guidance you need to prepare for the future you want.
