The Rutgers–Camden Study Away program connects students to on-the-ground experiences through course-based travel, within the United States and U.S. territories. Study Away is the domestic version of Learning Abroad. Each Study Away experience takes place within a course, which meets on campus semi-regularly throughout the term. Because Study Away travel is domestic, student costs tend to be affordable and do not require a passport.
Take a course that combines transformative classroom learning with an on-the-ground travel experience.
Study Away courses tagged “XPL” means they will meet your General Education Cross-Cutting Requirement.
Affordable and Accessible
Study Away courses can be covered through financial aid, tend to come at lower cost than international experiences, and do not require a passport.
