Camden County College, located in Camden, New Jersey, was established in 1967 on land which had formerly belonged to the Mother of the Savior Seminary. The original three buildings purchased along with the 320 acres of land that consist of the Camden campus are still in use, with their placement in relation to one another forming a central courtyard which became the location for the first graduation ceremony held by the school.
Over the years the college expanded the campus, adding new buildings and programs as needed to meet new community demands for education and training. The process of expansion has yet to yield, with plans currently in place to modernize and update older facilities in order to meet student demand and expectation. In addition to the main campus, CCC operates several center and branch campuses to provide more opportunities in the school's expanded service area.
Camden County College offers a variety of programs in many areas of study, allowing students to choose the career or academic path that best suits their needs. Career training programs take between one and two years of study in a specific field, providing students the opportunity to develop the skills and knowledge necessary to enter the workforce as a professional.
Students will take both theoretical and practical courses, allowing them to apply methodologies and techniques learned in the classroom to real world settings, providing experience and practice useful for future employment. Students will earn a certificate or diploma upon completion, after which they are eligible for employment at the entry level.
