Why Rutgers Winter Session?

Intensive format

The immersive Winter Session is ideal for learning subjects that require massed practice or rehearsal, such as foreign languages and public speaking.

Single focus

Because each student takes only one course in winter, instructors can offer field trips, field research, and travel study, which would be impossible during the fall and spring. Taking just one course will also allow you to master difficult material by focusing your energies on a single subject.

Small class size

Small classes that meet for extended periods during a short term allow you to build collegial relationships with your classmates and professor. The quality of interactions with students and instructors is consistently identified by both students and faculty as one of the best parts of their winter term experience.

Academic excellence

Winter Session courses on the New Brunswick campus meet or exceed the high academic standards set for the regular academic year at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, a top-ranked research institution and public university.
