The accelerated degree BA/MA program allows motivated Rutgers undergraduate students to save time and over $5,000 in graduate tuition, and earn a significant competitive advantage by graduating with an advanced Rutgers degree.  


As a dual degree BA/MA graduate student, you have the option of enrolling in up to three graduate courses (9 credits), generally one course per semester, beginning in your junior year.   These courses can count towards both undergraduate degree requirements and graduate degree requirements (application to the graduate program is still required).  This allows you to work on your graduate degree while satisfying your undergraduate requirements.  After completing your bachelor’s degree, you only need 7 extra classes (21 credits) to have your Master of Arts in Criminal justice from Rutgers University, Camden.


Students interested in the Accelerated BA/MA should contact the Graduate Program Director, Dr. Nathan Link.
