            The decision to establish “RU at the Shore” for 2015 was made following a survey of more than 4,500 undergraduates here, with 1,200 students – nearly 27 percent – indicating they would spend time along the 130-mile coastline and would be interested in taking classes for credit. Summer Session offers extensive internship and research/travel opportunities in addition to undergraduate and graduate courses in 250 fields.

The bachelor of science degree in Labor and Employment Relations (LER) is a popular program among students enrolled in Rutgers’ Off Campus degree completion programs or those who choose to earn a degree online. With jobs focused on managing and representing people enjoying steady growth, a Rutgers degree in labor and employment relations can give an individual the advantage in the job market.

Offered through the School of Management and Labor Relations (SMLR), the program comprises a flexible combination of online, daytime, weekend, evening, and/or off-campus courses. Yet, these flexible options do not hinder student access to faculty or student services staff at SMLR.
