Rutgers University-Newark is one of three campuses of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, and is northern New Jersey’s premier location for teaching and research. A broad range of programs are offered through its seven schools and colleges, and its many research and outreach centers.

At Rutgers-Newark, over 11,000 students (around 7,000 undergraduate, 4,000 graduate) are currently enrolled in programs in the arts, humanities, sciences, criminal justice, business, law and nursing. Our award-winning full-time faculty numbers over 500, and 99% hold a Ph.D. or J.D. Although we have all the benefits of a large research university, we have the atmosphere of a liberal arts college, with a student-faculty ratio of 13/1.


Our school is located in the heart of historic Newark, New Jersey and just a train ride away from New York City. It has been ranked as the most diverse university in the country. But what really sets the college apart from any other is the feeling of family on campus and the bonds that develop between students and between students and faculty. Students in the Arts, Culture and Media programs find that developing a productive academic relationship with individual instructors is greatly facilitated by smaller class sizes at Rutgers University-Newark.

The positive benefit of mentoring becomes firmly established through the repetition of familiar instructors throughout the many different courses within a student’s major. Through events such as lectures, exhibitions and field trips, students become more active and more aware of their field of study.
