Core Curriculum

SAS Core Curriculum Graphic: Contemporary Challenges; Areas of Inquiry; Cognitive Skills and ProcessesThe School of Arts and Sciences (SAS) requires that all students complete a goal-based Core Curriculum, as well as an approved major and an approved minor for students who are not pursuing credit-intensive majors.

The distinctive SAS Core Curriculum is structured as a set of core liberal arts and sciences learning goals. All are framed as activities students will be able to do at a foundational level by virtue of meeting the specified core goal. Courses may be counted as meeting multiple learning goals; students generally will complete the core in 10 to 14 courses of 3 or 4 credits each. A course used to meet core goals may also be used to fulfill a major or minor requirement. Only graded degree credit-bearing courses worth at least 3 credits and certified by the SAS faculty may be used to meet core goals. For lists of courses certified as meeting each goal, see below. These lists are also available in the Rutgers online degree audit system, Degree Navigator, which students use to track their progress in completing the Core Curriculum.

What courses count as Core courses?

Only a special, limited group of courses is certified by the faculty as meeting Core Curriculum goals. To be certified, the course must put the specific Core Curriculum goals front and center in its design and regularly assess student achievement of the certified Core goals.  Only courses that have committed to this process of certification, Core assessment, and continuous improvement are certified as Core courses. This is why some particular courses are certified while other courses that may seem to have a similar or analogous focus are not. This assures that all students develop the foundational liberal arts and sciences capacities the Core promises.

Liberal Arts Distribution Requirements

The School of Arts and Sciences (SAS) requires that all students complete a set of liberal arts distribution requirements, as well as an approved major and an approved minor for students who are not pursuing credit-intensive majors. The distribution requirements include up to 12 courses totaling between 24 and 36 credits. Some courses may be used to fulfill more than one distribution requirement, and a course used to fulfill a distribution requirement may also be used to fulfill a major or minor requirement.

The Liberal Arts Distribution Requirements are restricted to:

  • first year students enrolled in SAS prior to Fall 2011
  • transfer students enrolled in SAS prior to Fall 2012
  • school to school transfer students enrolled in SAS prior to Fall 2012

First year students entering SAS in Fall 2011 or later and transfer students entering SAS in Fall 2012 or later must complete the Core Curriculum.

Students who are following the Liberal Arts Distribution Requirements and prefer to complete the Core Curriculum should speak to an academic adviser.

Academics

Your undergraduate degree has the following components:

 
  1. Completion of the SAS Core Curriculum
  2. Completion of a Major
  3. Completion of a Minor
  4. Completion of a minimum of 120 degree credits.
  5. Meet the minimum cumulative grade-point average of 2.000

There is an expectation that once you begin your matriculation at Rutgers School of Arts and Sciences, you will complete the bulk of your work within academic departments on the New Brunswick Campus. There are, however, several other ways to earn credit toward the degree requirements. You may be awarded credits through Transfer courses, Advanced Placement examinations, International Baccalaureate, and Rutgers proficiency examinations.  Credits earned through these methods are not computed in the cumulative grade-point average. Academic departments determine if such courses and/or credits are applicable to the major, minor, or the SAS Core Curriculum.  Please review the information below regarding academic credits and policies at SAS.

SAS Students and Alumni Outside the Classroom

The following articles chronicle achievements of current students and alumni from the School of Arts and Sciences. Most of the articles below are from Rutgers' publications, while some are from other news outlets. We find that it is useful for students to think about majors and other academic experiences that are possible, and to examine the blending of academic and co-curricular work with post-graduation plans.

Academic Difficulty

However, sometimes the transition is more difficult for some students than others and can lead to self-doubt, denial, discouragement, poor academic performance and under achieving your potential.  If you are experiencing academic difficulty, please make an appointment with an SAS Academic Advisor as soon as possible, the earlier you seek support, the better to help you get you back on track.
