Undergraduate Studies

The Undergraduate Experience

We’re 36,000+ undergraduates big but built of smaller schools and academic departments to deliver a personalized learning experience. Support is always just an office visit, email, or after-class discussion away. And Rutgers graduates are hired by a who's who of respected companies, including Amazon, Apple, Disney, and Google.
