Graduate School and Research

Research is fundamental to everything we do here at The Graduate School. We’re proud to be designated a Carnegie R2 research institution, a recognition that means more research activity is happening here than in many universities across the country. That research is being done not just by faculty but by many of our graduate students (both Masters and PhD), ensuring that everyone learns the kind of hands-on skills that will give them a leg up on the competition. By bringing together faculty at the top of their fields, students with a passion for learning, and state-of-the-art resources and facilities, we’ve created a dynamic hub of innovation and discovery in New Jersey that’s making a major impact around the world.

Faculty Rock Stars

We’re home to a diverse group of scholars doing incredible research across a wide range of disciplines. Everyone from the Guggenheim Fellowship and Pulitzer Prize Committee to the National Science Foundation have recognized our faculty as leaders who are making significant contributions to their areas of expertise.

Engaged Learning

At Rutgers–Camden, we’re committed to giving back to the community we’re proud to call home. Our nationally-recognized outreach programs partner with the Camden community and organizations from around the region to make real differences in the lives of those who need it most. Our graduate students are deeply involved in these efforts, reflecting our belief that a full education means connecting what’s learned in the lab into a meaningful, positive impact on those around us.


Our students have gone on to major publishing deals, Ivy League tenure positions, and senior leadership in nonprofit, government, and corporate organizations. We offer incredible support to our graduate students, both financially and academically, and our Career Center helps them connect with the 500,000+ worldwide Rutgers alumni network so they can take their career to the next level.


We’re here to support your passion in every way we possibly can. The Graduate School at Rutgers University–Camden offers competitive funding for our graduate students, including scholarships and teaching assistantships for both New Jersey residents and out-of-state and international students. We also provide scholarships for those facing financial difficulty, along with a number of program-specific scholarships for those who qualify. No matter your situation, we’ll work together to turn your academic dreams into a reality.
