A Minor, In Time: International Student Stays on Course in Winter Session

For the 3,400 international students in Rutgers’s diverse student body, online courses taken during summer and winter terms enable them to be in two places at once.

Hailing from more than 115 countries, international students use online courses to hurdle time and distance barriers to complete required courses, pursue a minor, or chase other academic goals.

Bhagyawati Sanghani is one of those. She’s an international student who took a class even though she traveled back home to India over winter break.

Taking an online class -- remotely from her family’s home – as part of Winter Session at Rutgers University-New Brunswick allowed her to graduate with a minor in Public Health in May 2015. That minor rounded out her degree in Biological Sciences from the School of Environmental & Biological Sciences.

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.

ENABLED to Work Program Offers Training, Job Search Skills

Alex Bruton served two years in Vietnam and 22 years as an Army reservist, but he faced one of his biggest challenges when two knee replacement surgeries left him unable to continue working on his feet as a cardiology technician.

Bruton sought help from the Veterans Administration, which referred him to the state Division of Vocational Rehabilitation services (DVR). That agency connected him with the ENABLE Division of Small & Associates of Livingston and ultimately with Rutgers’ Center for Continuing Professional Development (CCPD).

Through these two educational partners in the Rutgers ENABLED to Work program, Bruton has been able to train for a new career and enhance his marketability through job counseling.

With state grant funding paying his tuition, Bruton enrolled in an online training program through Rutgers’ CCPD last summer to become an electronic medical health records specialist.  He also received counseling through ENABLE on job-search and resume-writing skills and techniques.

One-on-One Coaching at Rutgers Gives Professional Writers an Edge

Hands typing on a keyboard

“Every writer I know has trouble writing,” Joseph Heller, the best-selling author of Catch 22, once observed.

Most professional writers would probably agree. Writing for a living can be both exhilarating and exasperating, particularly when deadlines loom and fussy clients must be satisfied.

Rutgers WPx – the Writing Extension Program at the School of Arts and Sciences in New Brunswick – offers a menu of one-on-one personal coaching options, both online and in person that can help writers defeat the demons that often plague them. Coaching can assist writers with focusing their thoughts, identifying problem areas, building critical skills, and even managing relationships with their clients.  

Dan Spink, WPX director, said that individual coaching courses were added to WPx’s course selections about five years ago “when we realized the need for specific, real-world workplace training in our market.”
