Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros is that it provides an affordable education and the professors are generally very knowledgeable. The cons are that the campus is in a poor location that parking is very far off campus. Therefore you have to walk through a bad neighborhood to get to the parking lot.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2017

I have just begun my academic journey at Rutgers Law; therefore, my impressions may change drastically for better or worse as I progress through my course study. However, the academic community appears to be engaging and committed to you, and your overall development.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

Rutgers Camden provides a small school atmosphere with big benefits. The name of rutgers allows for many opportunities to work with other programs and institutions. The faculty and staff at Rutgers work diligently to ensure that students have important instruments needed and work to have up to date technology on campus.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

The school has a great network of professionals but the area the school is surrounded by has a high crime rate.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2017

My graduate program is well known and a great value. The staff is very understanding of students' professional and life schedules and very accommodating. Most students are part time and work full time and its easy to relate to each other.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2014

The faculty is incredibly helpful in helping new students get started with financial aid and courses even if you are taking courses solely online. Unfortunately, the Orientation is somewhat unorganized and taking classes online is less personal and consequently takes away from the graduate experience of working with your peers. That being said, you will get out of this program whatever effort you put in.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

One pro of my program is that it was the first to partner with the Peace Corps to prepare students for international public service. Therefore, the partnership with the Peace Corps is strong, as well the curriculum. On the other hand, the workload is extremely heavy because it is an accelerated program. Also, learning in each class is often separate rather than project-based within the program, and/or specifically geared towards students areas of interest. The professors and program administration, however, are open to working towards creating a more integrated, focused program, which is exciting!

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

There are only a handful of professors that I have had at Rutgers that are really preparing the students to be good social workers. If you are planning on attending Rutgers for social work, expect to learn the most from your internships, not from your classes.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2015

The physical therapy program at Rutgers-Camden is a good program. It has a small class size every year with about 30 per graduating class. With such a small class size you can get the attention you need to succeed. While the workload and curriculum are intense it really prepares you well for you career.

Degree: Creative Writing
Graduation Year: 2013

The professors are EVERYTHING at Rutgers-Camden. You are getting the high quality Rutgers education- but in down trodden, crime ridden, dangerous and ugly Camden, New Jersey. If I had to do it again, I wouldn't. But I am thankful for the relationships I have made with the faculty.
