Master of Education

The common requirements of all of the master of education (Ed.M.) programs in the school are described in this section. More specific and additional requirements of particular programs can be found on the pages that describe those programs.

Candidates for the Ed.M. degree must complete a minimum of 30 credits at Rutgers. A minimum of 15 credits must be in courses at the graduate level (numbered 500 or above).

Departments may, and in some cases do, set requirements in addition to the minimum requirements given above. These requirements may include comprehensive examinations and research papers. It is the responsibility of the student to be informed of the standards of the program and department of the major field as well as those of the school.

Transfer credit from an accredited institution may be accepted on approval of the student's adviser only in programs in which more than 30 credits are required for graduation.
