Why Rutgers Summer Session?

Course Selection — 
  • One of the largest summer programs in the country, Rutgers New Brunswick offers over 2,200 course sections, internships, and research and travel study opportunities to help you fulfill core or major/minor requirements and build your resume.
Outstanding Faculty — 
  • Instructors are passionate about their subjects, adept at structuring engaging, interactive learning, and committed to helping their students succeed.
Small Class Size —
  • Small classes allow you to build collegial relationships with your classmates and professor. The quality of interactions in class is consistently identified by both students and faculty as one of the best parts of their summer term experience.
Single Focus —
  • Because you’ll only take one or two classes at a time, you can master difficult material by focusing your studies.
Intensive Format — 
  • The summer term is ideal for learning subjects that require massed practice or rehearsal, such as foreign languages and public speaking. Long class meetings and short breaks between classes help you retain information better and use class time more effectively.
Academic Excellence —
  • New Brunswick’s Summer Session courses meet or exceed the high academic standards set for the regular academic year at Rutgers, a top-ranked research institution and public university.
