Rutgers University-Newark Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (4)
Rutgers University Newark College of Arts & Sciences was the obvious choice for me when it came time to decide where I would be best prepared to achieve my educational goals. After researching Rutgers Urban Teacher Education Program and learning that it was one of the top-ranked teacher certification programs in the state, I knew that I had found the ideal school that would not only help me become specialized in my desired area of focus, but would equip me with the skills and educational experiences that would allow me to excel in my field. In addition to Rutgers research focus and diverse campus environment, its faculty of highly-credentialed professors was impressive and exciting. Upon graduating, I felt certain that I have received one of the finest educations possible with opportunities to conduct undergraduate research and study under some of the most respected academics in my field. With its low tuition, generous financial aid packages, and convenient accessibility via public transportation, Rutgers allowed me to focus on my studies with a lighter financial burden. With no reservation, I wholeheartedly recommend Rutgers-Newark as the ideal school to attend.
The psychology program at Rutgers University-Newark was one that was unique. The program exposes students to the realities that are associated with working in the field of psychology as well as granting students the opportunity to put what they have learned into practice.
My University is fantastic when it comes to educating students on the curriculum however, when it comes to finding a suitable career that allows you to pay back your student loan debt, they are not very helpful. I love the environment, they encourage humanitarian efforts and have options to pick and choose courses that interest you. Although I made my plans for pursuing a career in Dentistry clear to my professors and I demonstrated academic excellence by maintaining a 3.4 GPA, I was still unable to even get an interview into their Rutgers dental program. I have secured a seat at a different university but as Rutgers alumni I would have liked to have a bit of acknowledgement from the alma mater.
The department of Social work has some extraordinary staff and professors who are well informed and helpful. The classes are great and you will learn a great deal about American Social Welfare Policies, and how to respect diversity.
