Rutgers Global Online Learning and Internships

Online Global Learning

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed our lives in many ways, but it has also shown us the essential need for global interactions to address world challenges.

In response to this, Rutgers Global–Study Abroad is excited to work with some of our international university partners to provide remote global study and internship opportunities to students.

Students can gain 3-6 credits through courses and international work experience from the safety and comfort of home. Engaging virtually with top faculty and international organizations will enable students to build a global professional network and develop essential career and intercultural communication skills.
