Dual Degrees

Second Degree Candidates

A student who already possesses a bachelor's degree from Rutgers or another accredited college or university and who wishes to obtain a second bachelor's degree must complete successfully a minimum of 30 new credits at Rutgers-Camden. Students matriculating for a second bachelor's degree at Rutgers-Camden must complete successfully all requirements for that degree in effect at the time of their matriculation for the second degree. Courses taken elsewhere, including those for the first degree, may be considered for transfer credit.


Students presently enrolled in the Camden College of Arts and Sciences, University College-Camden, or the School of Business-Camden may elect to receive two baccalaureate degrees (B.A. and B.S.). To be awarded two simultaneous degrees, they must satisfy the requirements of two major fields and accumulate a minimum of 30 credits beyond that required for one baccalaureate degree. Students pursuing two degrees should plan their programs carefully with assistance from their respective advising offices.


B.A./M.A. inchildhood studies, criminal justice, English, history,liberal studies, and psychology

B.A./M.S. in biology, chemistry, computer science, and mathematics

B.A./M.P.A. in political science/public administration; economics/public administration

Students enrolled in the Camden College of Arts and Sciences or in University College may apply during their junior year to enter the dual-degree program (B.A./M.A., B.A./M.S., or B.A./M.P.A.). This program enables students with strong academic credentials to begin graduate work while still undergraduates, thus speeding the completion of the master's degree. Camden undergraduates who intend to pursue a master's degree in the Rutgers Graduate School-Camden must be approved for entry into this dual-degree program by the director of the graduate program in which they wish to study. If accepted, they may take one graduate course in each semester of their senior year. These two courses are charged at the undergraduate tuition rate, but are double-counted toward both the B.A. and the master's degree requirements. As seniors, students must apply to the graduate school in the regular fashion and be formally admitted and matriculated. They then go on to complete the remainder of their credits as master-level students.
