Diversity: Academic Programs

Rutgers University–Camden has several interdisciplinary programs that feature study focused on diversity and equity.

AFRICANA STUDIES

The program in Africana Studies provides students with a sound understanding of the black experience nationally and internationally, while focusing on North America. The interdisciplinary features of the program allow for a broad and varied exposure to black culture, economics, politics, and history from Africa to the Americas. 

Educational Opportunity FunD (EOF)

EOF is a state-funded program providing opportunities for higher education to New Jersey residents who would not be able to attend college without the program's financial assistance and special services.

European Studies

European Studies minor offers students a wide variety of ways in which they can gain recognition for learning about a diverse, fascinating, and important part of our world. 

Latin American and Latino Studies

The Latin American Studies program explores the diverse region that stretches from the Mexican border to the tip of Tierra del Fuego. This minor complements major programs in Spanish language and literature, history, business, economics, sociology, anthropology, political science, art or other disciplines. 

Lawyering Program

The lawyering program at Rutgers Law School is comprised of a series of courses, experiences within courses, and cocurricular activities that engage students in the intellectual, pragmatic, ethical, and personal issues that arise in the practice of law, including pro bono and public interest work.

Learning Abroad Program

A unique learning experience that combines classes on campus with short study trips abroad, the Learning Abroad Program offers five to 10 courses from various academic departments each year. The program is ideal for students who want exposure to international travel and culture but for whom an extended stay abroad may not be feasible.

WOMEN'S AND GENDER STUDIES

This interdisciplinary minor explores gender and sexuality as a social construction that shapes our thoughts, values, accomplishments, and relationships. Connected to this is the study of how other social categories such as race and class affect our reality.
