Chestnut Hill College is a coeducational Roman Catholic college in the Chestnut Hill section of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. It was founded in 1924 as a women's college by the Sisters of St. Joseph. It was originally called Mount Saint Joseph College and assumed its current name in 1938. In 1980 it established a coeducational graduate education program. Chestnut Hill College started to admit male students to its undergraduate programs in 2003. Located at the northwestern edge of Philadelphia on 45 acres overlooking the Wissahickon Creek, Chestnut Hill College opened in 1924 as a Catholic, four-year, liberal arts college for women. Founded as Mount Saint Joseph College by the Sisters of St. Joseph, the college was renamed in 1938 as Chestnut Hill College. Throughout its history the college has aimed to offer a liberal arts education that provides students with a broad background in the humanities, social sciences and natural sciences. The goal has been to prepare students for life’s challenges by helping them to grow intellectually, spiritually, emotionally, and socially. The curriculum has been modified over time. The college originally awarded only the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees to young women of traditional college age. In 1972, a continuing education department, now called the School of Continuing Studies, was established to extend opportunities for undergraduate study to mature women and men. Many classes are conducted on evenings and weekends to accommodate the schedules of older students. The coeducational the School of Graduate Studies was established in 1980 to offer Master’s degrees; in 1997, it added a doctoral program. Academic changes also included expanding beyond the physical limits of the campus. As a member of Southeastern Pennsylvania Consortium for Higher Education (SEPCHE), Chestnut Hill pursues a collaborative approach to higher education with seven other local institutions. Through membership in the Association of College of Sisters of St. Joseph (ACSSJ), Chestnut Hill is able to offer its students opportunities to enrich their educational experiences by studying at seven other colleges in the United States. Study-abroad programs also are available. In November 2001 Chestnut Hill announced plans to admit men to the traditional-age, full-time undergraduate program in fall 2003. With the enrollment of male students, the 78-year-old College for Women became the School of Undergraduate Studies. Enrollment increased dramatically after the undergraduate college became coeducational, increasing 80% by fall 2005. In 2006, college officials reported that a total of more than 2000 students were enrolled in Chestnut Hill's three constituent schools, with a total of 2,570 students expected by 2010.
