Why Rutgers Summer Session?

Intensive Format
The immersive, fast-paced, summer Session is ideal for learning subjects that need practice or rehearsal. Courses in foreign languages and public speaking especially benefit from this format.

Small classes that meet during a short term allow you to build relationships with your classmates and professor. Students and instructors report that the quality of interactions as one of the best parts of their summer term experience.
