Dual Degree Information

The dual degree program allows students to save time and money, and earn a significant competitive career advantage by graduating with an advanced Rutgers degree. As a dual degree graduate student, you will have the option of enrolling in up to three graduate courses during your undergraduate senior year.  These courses will count toward both your undergraduate degree and your masters degree.  This will allow you to work on your graduate degree while satisfying your undergraduate requirements. After completing your bachelor’s degree, you will need as few as 6 more classes (plus a capstone project) to complete your Master of Arts in Liberal Studies degree from Rutgers-Camden.
