Postgraduate Overview

Rutgers' reputation as an academic powerhouse has a lot to do with the high caliber of students who pursue graduate education here. They come from outstanding schools, are accustomed to excellence, and know they will find top-level instruction and opportunity in our graduate schools, programs, departments, and research centers.  

Graduate students arrive at Rutgers University–New Brunswick with all sorts of goals and aspirations. What they find here is our great location—about an hour from New York City and Philadelphia—our incredibly diverse student body, and all the resources, top-rated programs, and professors expected of one of the nation’s great research-intensive universities. They also discover that our small, close-knit academic departments, programs, and schools provide a personalized and supportive graduate experience.  

Academic life for graduate students at Rutgers revolves around your academic program. We like to say that graduate programs are 99 percent “controlled locally.” Why is this important? While the overall size of the graduate population is large, enrollment in individual programs is intentionally limited, so most instruction takes place in small classes, seminars, and labs, and in informal scholarly and social gatherings.
