The Art Program at Rutgers–Camden provides its students with the skills and tools necessary to make a splash in the fields of graphic design, animation, illustration, photography, sculpture, painting, or prepare for graduate school. With world-class, professionally active faculty and small class sizes, students in the program receive individualized attention and direction as part of a rigorous liberal arts education. Students may also design their own interdisciplinary majors to prepare for careers in art therapy, medical illustration, advertising, education, and other fields.
Housed in the Fine Arts Building at the Camden campus of Rutgers, the Art studios are among the best-equipped educational facilities in the greater Delaware Valley, with two newly-renovated graphic design studios, a sculpture studio, a ceramics studio, a painting studio, a photography studio, a dark room, two animation labs, post-production labs, a drawing studio, and a new digital studies center. Our full-time art faculty members are professional artists who have contributed their works to major exhibitions throughout the United States and abroad.
Our focus on student-created work makes Rutgers a haven for the creative and adventurous artist. Students have access to the vibrant and thriving art scenes in both Philadelphia and New York City, and internships are readily available. Our students are also afforded the opportunity to showcase their work in our on-campus gallery, the Stedman Art Gallery. With the wide variety of opportunities and personalized attention, Rutgers is the place to go for a well-rounded, collaborative arts education that will leave its students prepared for graduate school, or a variety of career opportunities.
