- M.A. applicants are accepted throughout the year
Admission to the Ph.D. Program is based on a combination of undergraduate (and graduate, if applicable) transcripts with a minimum 3.2 GPA, GRE scores, statement of purpose, and letters of recommendation. Admissions decisions are based on a combination of the candidates’ academic qualifications and their match with areas of faculty expertise (these areas are described on the faculty page). Admission to the M.A. program is based on a combination of undergraduate (and graduate, if applicable) transcripts with a minimum 3.0 GPA, statement of purpose, and letters of recommendation. Students who complete the M.A. program and who then wish to pursue a Ph.D. must complete a separate application to the Ph.D. program.
Teaching and research assistantships, which cover tuition costs and provide stipends for living expenses, are available on a competitive basis to students accepted into the Ph.D. Program. Compensation and duties attached to the appointment are governed by a contract negotiated between Rutgers University and the American Association of University Professors. Responsibilities usually include serving as a teaching assistant for an undergraduate course or research assistant on a research project. Compensation is approximately $23,000 per year, plus tuition remission and full medical benefits. Additional information financial aid can be found here http://studentaid.rutgers.edu/
