Undergraduate Education in SAS
The SAS is the comprehensive arts and sciences school of Rutgers University-New Brunswick. Students complete a Core Curriculum that meets a broad range of foundational learning goals while also gaining depth in particular areas of interest through completion of a major and minor. Students study and actively engage in research with our world-class research faculty as they create new knowledge and understandings of the natural environment and human behavior across 40 disciplines. SAS students achieve the knowledge and skill competencies necessary to successfully meet the rapidly changing economic and social demands of the 21st Century and design purposeful lives.
Students looking for more information about academic programs, policies, and advising should consult the Office of Academic Services.
The 2018 SAS Awards for Distinguished Contributions to Undergraduate Education were announced at a May 1 ceremony at Rutgers Hillel. The awards honored seventeen teachers--from faculty members to graduate students--for accomplishments both within and beyond the classroom. Executive Dean Peter March opened the ceremony by emphasizing the critical role that undergraduate instruction plays in a strong Arts and Sciences program. He then presented the awards, which cover the spectrum of Arts and Sciences fields from economics and French to psychology and anthropology. Read more about the honorees here.
