The Art program at Rutgers University is an exciting, innovative, and stimulating laboratory for artists and designers. We provide students with the skills and tools necessary to make an impact in the fields of graphic design, animation, illustration, photography, sculpture, drawing, and painting.


Turn your passion for Art into your profession.

Art students receive individualized attention and direction in small classes from professionally active artists and designers, as part of a rigorous professional education.

The Art program at Rutgers University has built strong relationships with the leaders of the art and design industry. Located in close proximity to the major art centers of Philadelphia and New York City, our students have access to vibrant and thriving art scenes. We provide students with readily available internships and help them to succeed in their career goals. With a wide variety of opportunities and personalized attention, Rutgers–Camden is the place to go for a well-rounded, collaborative arts education that will make its students prepared for ambitious careers in the fields of art and design.

Careers in Art and Design

Rutgers University–Camden has a strong record of preparing successful professionals for both the commercially-oriented fields of graphic design and animation, and for studio-based professional practices in painting, drawing, photography, and sculpture. Our alumni are also practicing artists who contribute to the global dialogue in the visual arts and culture, and participate in national and international exhibitions. Our electronic arts alumni are among the leaders of the industry, working for international corporations, including Disney, IBM, NBC, and have worked on projects such as “Star Wars” and the World Olympic Games. Many alumni who concentrated in studio art have chosen to expand their studies by earning MFA degrees from top national programs, and continue their careers as professional artists. Some students combine disciplines and became educators (school and college level teachers), arts administrators, curators, art therapists, medical illustrators, fashion designers, creative directors, and advertisers, among other professions. Our faculty works in partnership with the Rutgers–Camden Career Center to help our students build their professional visions and careers.
