Admission Requirements

Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Public Affairs, with a Concentration in Community Development

Admission to the doctoral of philosophy degree program (Ph.D.) is based on the applicant's research potential as demonstrated by undergraduate (and graduate, if applicable) transcripts; Graduate Record Exam (GRE) scores, which are prefered, but LSAT or GMAT scores may be accepted (exam results must not be more than three years old); three letters of recommendation from persons familiar with the applicant's work in an academic setting; a personal statement that includes evidence of an ability to succeed in graduate-level social science quantitative methods courses; a CV or résumé; and a writing sample. Students already enrolled in Rutgers University-Camden's M.S. in public affairs program may have the GRE requirement waived. No other exceptions to the GRE/LSAT/GMAT requirement will be granted.

To make an informed decision, before submitting an application prospective students should review faculty areas of expertise to ensure a good fit with faculty research interests, and to identify a potential dissertation adviser.

The deadline for admission to the doctoral program in January 10.

Master of Science (M.S.) in Public Affairs, with a Concentration in Community Development

The application requirements for the master of science (M.S.) degree program are the same as those for the doctoral program, with the exception of the GRE, which is optional for all M.S. applicants.

The deadline for admission to the M.S. program is March 1.
