Dive in to a completely new kind of learning experience—one that enhances your education today and empowers you for tomorrow.
Wednesday, Feb. 20: Rutgers University-Camden is open and operating on a normal schedule. Students may wish to consult with their professors to confirm the status of individual classes. Information about event cancellations is available here.
Undergraduate Learning Beyond the Classroom
Hands-on experience gives you exposure to new career opportunities and helps you to build new types of skills. You can apply what you learn in class to internships, service learning, research, international study, and more.
Cultivate real-world skills as you step out of the classroom and build your résumé through our internship programs. You can intern during the fall, spring, or summer semesters while earning academic credit and/or money.
The Rutgers–Camden Career Center has the resources you need to find an internship that fits your future goals. You’ll have access to internship fairs, visits from employers, and résumé-writing and interviewing workshops to prepare you for your search. Because of our great location in one of America’s largest metropolitan areas, you’ll have access to internship opportunities with top employers in the region.
Use your skills to give back and make a difference in the community. Whether through our Civic Scholars Program, volunteerism and service, community-based research, or other integrated efforts, you can get involved and help to meet the challenges facing our host city, county, and region.
Currently, students bring arts education to local Camden neighborhoods, work as mentors at area schools, and provide health screenings to international communities in need, just to name a few.
Office of Scholar Development and Fellowship Advising
The Office of Scholar Development and Fellowship Advising helps undergraduate students identify and apply for prestigious awards and national fellowships. You can receive guidance on applying for nationally recognized fellowship programs that fund graduate training, public service internships, laboratory and field research, study abroad experiences, and professional opportunities.
Exciting discoveries await at a research university—and not just for professors. You’ll find Rutgers–Camden students in laboratories and libraries, in nearby neighborhoods and far-flung outposts, joining in the quest for new knowledge.
How can you get involved with research? Take a research-intensive course. Assist your professor with research. Launch your own independent research project. Whichever path you choose, you’ll learn how to solve problems, think critically, and write persuasively. And what employer doesn’t value that skill set?
Explore the world around you and enchance your Rutgers–Camden education with our Learning Abroad Program, which integrates travel into the curriculum. You can experience new cultures and gain international travel experience during one- to two-week study trips.
Students interested in a traditional, immersive experience can participate in the University’s study abroad program for summer, semester, or year-long study abroad programs.
Special Housing Communities
Tailor your housing experience to enhance your education and meet others with similar interests and values. Floors based on academic and extracurricular interests are available, as is a housing community exclusively for transfer students.
Graduate Research Across Disciplines
At Rutgers University–Camden, graduate students pursue master‘s and doctoral programs in a challenging, academic environment cultivated by outstanding faculty scholars who encourage investigation and exploration. Through our libraries, centers, institutues, and facilities, students have access to the superior academic and research resources you would expect from a major research university such as Rutgers.
Here’s a sample of where the research pursuits of recent Rutgers–Camden graduate students have led.
- A graduate of the Ph.D. in childhood studies program, Diane Marano’s dissertation became the basis of her new book Juvenile Offenders and Guns: Voices Behind Gun Violence.
- Elisa Miyake, who researched energy drink consumption as a M.S. in psychology student, published her research in the scholarly journal Addictive Behaviors.
- As an M.S. in biology candidate, Ryan Pachucki studied how circadian rhythms work within populations of fungus that grow globally.
- Matt Niepielko, Rutgers–Camden's first Ph.D. graduate in computational and integrative biology, was named a recipient of the DeLill Nasser Award for Professional Development in Genetics from the Genetics Society of America to pursue postdoctoral research.
