BTN LiveBIG: Rutgers brings classes to students 'at the Shore'

Rutgers brings classes to students 'at the Shore'

Far from being a surf-and-sun session with a little learning mixed in, it offered students intensive, intimate courses driven by practical considerations, said Liz Beasley, director of the summer session and special projects at Rutgers-New Brunswick.

“We’re always looking for new ways to get courses to the students,” she explained. “A lot of them work part-time or full-time. If they’re working, they have to cut back on the credits they take. The summer and winter courses are important to them for graduating in a timely manner.”

Summer is approaching, which means sandy beaches, bathing suits and ... textbooks. The Jersey Shore is set to be more than a vacation destination this summer.

For the first time, Rutgers University is offering summer classes at the beach, called RU at the Shore.

Instead of paperback novels, Rutgers students might be bringing textbooks as their beach reading. The university will host 17 new undergraduate courses in Atlantic City, Cape May and Point Pleasant Beach.

Summer Session offers extensive internship and research/travel opportunities in addition to undergraduate and graduate courses in 250 fields.
