Graduate Study in Childhood Studies
at Rutgers University-Camden, USA
The Department of Childhood Studies at Rutgers University in Camden, New Jersey USA
opened its doors in September 2007. The interdisciplinary program offers BA/BS, MA and
PhD degrees (http://childhood.camden.rutgers.edu). Students come from a variety of
backgrounds and bring an impressive array of educational and life experience to the
program. Financial aid, teaching and research assistantships are available to qualified, fulltime students.
The full-time faculty in the department is complemented by Associates in the Center for
Children and Childhood Studies (http://childhood.camden.rutgers.edu/CSfaculty.htm#CSAF). These faculty have appointments in a wide range of departments and
schools around the University, including, among others, Anthropology, Psychology,
Sociology, English, Public Policy, Religion and Philosophy, History and Law.
Courses available to doctoral students extend from the two-semester Proseminar in
Childhood Studies to a variety of methods courses (statistical, interpretive, literary) across
the campus to in-depth study of specific areas such as Children and Childhood in CrossCultural Perspectives, Child Growth and Development, Issues in Social Policy, Growing Up
in Africa, History of Childhood, Children's Literature and Literature for Adolescents.
The Department sponsors regular Research Seminars in addition to hosting conferences and
visiting scholars. These activities add to the already vibrant intellectual culture on the
campus.
Rutgers-Camden, a beautiful, urban campus expanding to accommodate the growth of
Southern New Jersey and located just across the Delaware River from Philadelphia, offers
access to the intellectual and cultural resources of the area.
The Department expects to continue to expand over the next several years through the
recruitment of faculty and is currently undertaking a search for a several junior and senior
faculty member members (see http://childhood.camden.rutgers.edu).
