Undergraduate students in New Brunswick complete degrees in 10 degree-granting undergraduate schools. First-year students enroll in the School of Arts and Sciences, or one of the five professional schools admitting first-year students: the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences, the Mason Gross School of the Arts, the Ernest Mario School of
Pharmacy, the School of
Engineering, or the Rutgers Business School: Undergraduate-New Brunswick. School of Arts and Science students may complete majors offered by the School of Arts and Sciences or by one of the four professional schools admitting upper-division students of the School of Arts and Sciences: the School of Communication and Information, the School of Social Work, the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public
Policy, and the School of Management and Labor Relations. Students completing majors in these four professional
schools receive a single bachelor's degree conferred by the School of Arts and
Sciences in conjunction with the professional school. The Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning
and Public Policy and the School of Management and Labor Relations admit
upper-division transfer degree-completion students directly; those students
receive degrees conferred by those schools.
While all of the schools are dedicated to providing the highest
quality education, each school establishes its own admission,
scholastic standing, and graduation requirements, and each offers
specific academic programs that reflect the school's particular
mission and philosophy. Students are urged to consult each school
section both for a general description of the school and for a list of
the academic programs that each offers. Decisions about which school to attend are made based on intended major.
The faculty of the School of Arts and Sciences offers most of the
academic programs available to students in that school. It encompasses more than 740 tenured and tenure-track
faculty members and offers more than 75 major programs and options, as well as
numerous minor programs and other specializations.
