Undergraduate Education in New Brunswick

Undergraduate students in New Brunswick complete degrees in 10 degree-granting undergraduate schools. First-year students enroll in the liberal arts and sciences college: the School of Arts and Sciences, or one of the five professional schools admitting first-year students: the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences, the Mason Gross School of the Arts, the Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy, the School of Engineering, or the Rutgers Business School: Undergraduate-New Brunswick. School of Arts and Science students may complete majors offered by the School of Arts and Sciences or by one of the four professional schools admitting upper-division students of the School of Arts and Sciences: the School of Communication and Information, the School of Social Work, the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, and the School of Management and Labor Relations. Students completing majors in these four professional schools receive a single bachelor's degree conferred by the School of Arts and Sciences in conjunction with the professional school. The Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy and the School of Management and Labor Relations admit upper-division transfer degree completion students directly; those students receive degrees conferred by those schools.

While all of the schools are dedicated to providing the highest quality education, each school establishes its own admission, scholastic standing, and graduation requirements, and each offers specific academic programs that reflect the school's particular mission and philosophy. Students are urged to consult each school section both for a general description of the school and for a list of the academic programs that each offers. Decisions about which school to attend are made based on intended major.

The faculty of the School of Arts and Sciences offers most of the academic programs available to students in that school. It encompasses more than 740 tenured and tenure-track faculty members and offers more than 75 major programs and options, as well as numerous minor programs and other specializations.

The degree-granting professional schools in New Brunswick, both undergraduate and graduate, each have their own separate faculty. Taken together, the Rutgers faculty in New Brunswick comprises a distinguished teaching and research staff of nearly 2,000 faculty members.

Rutgers University-New Brunswick is made up of five campuses located on both sides of the Raritan River. The campuses are connected by a free, campuswide bus system. The undergraduate schools are residential, with a variety of living accommodations on the five campuses.

The university's extensive facilities and extracurricular activities are described on the Information for Current Students website.
