New Brunswick Undergraduate Catalog 2020-2022 School of Arts and Sciences Degree Requirements Requirements Completion of a Major and a Minor  

Completion of a Major and a Minor

Students must complete an approved major and an approved minor listed in the Programs of Study chapter in this section. The requirement for a minor may be waived for students completing multiple majors or extraordinarily credit-intensive majors. (Students in credit-intensive majors are strongly encouraged to complete a minor, even though they are not required to do so.) SAS will consider waiving the requirement of the minor for students transferring to SAS from the Rutgers School of Engineering, Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy, Rutgers Business School: Undergraduate-New Brunswick, or School of Nursing if at time of transfer they have amassed 18 or more credits, with a grade-point average of 2.0 or better, within a specific professional school subject. All students are responsible for consulting with the undergraduate director in the department of their major and of their minor to ensure that they will have fulfilled all requirements by the time of graduation.
