Joint Degrees

Graduate students may earn a Women’s and Gender Studies M.A. along with another graduate degree at Rutgers. Admission and financial aid are separate processes for each program, therefore, students must apply separately to each program. No special consideration is given to students already accepted in a program at Rutgers. Students who are accepted to both programs, may enroll for both, but technically cannot earn the degrees simultaneously. Thus, after the student completes the first program, s/he must request that credits from the first program be applied to the second degree program. Students interested in this option should discuss it with the Graduate Directors of the Women’s and Gender Studies Program and the second Department in which s/he is interested.
