If you’re considering a Childhood Studies Major or Minor

The bachelor degree in Childhood Studies prepares practitioners and beginning scholars to understand childhood in interdisciplinary contexts. Graduates have the analytical skills necessary to work effectively with children, an appreciation of the diversity of paths through childhood and adolescence, and a commitment to the welfare of children throughout the world.

Graduates of the Childhood Studies program of Rutgers University will be able to communicate effectively in speech and in writing, understand and manipulate quantitative information, interpret complicated social problems from humanistic and social science perspectives, and are widely knowledgeable about children and representations of them. This background prepares students for success for careers in many areas: teaching, social service, youth programming, and so on.
