Students who hold a credential equivalent to the
baccalaureate degree in the United States from an accredited institution may
pursue a second bachelor's degree at the School of Arts and Sciences (SAS).
Second-degree candidates must complete the following requirements:
A minimum of 30 credits at Rutgers University-New Brunswick beyond those applied to
the initial degree
All requirements for a new major
SAS Core Curriculum
Students may apply approved coursework completed during the
first degree toward the Areas of Inquiry and Cognitive Skills and Processes
components of the Core Curriculum. However, all second
degree candidates must complete at least the Contemporary Challenges [CC] learning goals and one Writing and Communication with revision [WCr] course at
Rutgers-New Brunswick as part of the second degree; courses taken as part of the first degree cannot be used to
satisfy these requirements.
Two baccalaureate degrees may not be
earned concurrently except through approved dual-degree programs, such as that
between SAS and the School of Engineering. Students who complete multiple
majors earn a single bachelor's degree.
