The dual degree program, available only on the Camden campus, allows students to save time and money, approximately $3,360 in graduate tuition, and earn a significant competitive career advantage by graduating with an advanced Rutgers degree. As a dual degree graduate student, you would have the option of enrolling in one graduate course in each semester of your undergraduate senior year that would count as both an undergraduate degree requirement and a graduate degree requirement. This would allow you to work on your graduate degree while satisfying your undergraduate requirements. After completing your bachelor’s degree, you would only need 8 extra classes to have your Master of Arts in Liberal Studies degree from Rutgers-Camden.
