Prestige, opportunity, tradition, and value characterize every aspect of the Rutgers–Camden experience. Located at the foot of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge, just across the Delaware River from historic Philadelphia, Rutgers–Camden is at the very heart of activity in the metro Philadelphia region. As the southernmost of the three regional campuses that comprise Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, Rutgers–Camden delivers all the resources of one of America's most prestigious public research universities, with all the benefits of a supportive small-college experience at a competitive tuition rate.
The small scale of the campus makes it possible for undergraduates to study with highly respected faculty from the time they arrive on campus. Student research, experiential learning, and international studies are hallmarks of the undergraduate experience.
Our law school is ranked highly nationwide for the original scholarship of the faculty and the overall experience of this increasingly prominent public law school. We also offer graduate professional education in business, where the MBA program applies high-level theory to contemporary business practice; public policy and administration, with special emphasis on international and community development; and physical therapy, which offers a new DPT degree. In 2007, Rutgers–Camden inaugurated the nation’s first PhD program in childhood studies, gaining international recognition for the boldness of our vision. New masters programs in such areas as computer science, business and natural science, computational biology, psychology, and creative writing (MFA) leverage academic strengths and expand degree options for Rutgers students. Rutgers–Camden consistently earns high marks from students, graduates, employers, and such entities as U.S. News and World Report, Smart Money Magazine, and Entrepreneur Magazine.
