Rutgers-New Brunswick Students

SAS and SEBS Students (Joint Degree)

Students enrolled in the School of Arts and Sciences (SAS) and the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences (SEBS) are required to submit the Application for Declaration of Undergraduate Major prior to declaring a Bloustein School major. Applicants should have a minimum grade of “C” or better in each of the prerequisite courses for their intended area of study and be in good academic standing. Once admitted to the major, students will remain in their primary school (SAS or SEBS) completing its Core Curriculum, and their major requirements with the Bloustein School.

Note: Public Health is the only primary major option offered by the Bloustein School for students in the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences (SEBS). Any of our majors can be selected as a second major to a SEBS program.

Professional School Students (Second Program)

Students enrolled in a Rutgers-New Brunswick professional school (i.e. School of Engineering), who wish to declare a Bloustein School major, are required to submit the Application for Declaration of Undergraduate Major. The Bloustein major would be the students secondary program. Prior to applying, the students should meet with an advisor in their dean’s office to determine if it is possible to pursue a Bloustein School major.

School to School Transfer

Students in the School of Arts and Sciences (SAS) are no longer able to transfer to the Bloustein School as all of our major programs are available to them. Also, SAS students may combine a Bloustein School major and minor. SAS students should apply for their major of interest by submitting the Application for Declaration of Undergraduate Major via the above “Apply Now” button.

Students in the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences (SEBS) are no longer able to transfer to the Bloustein School for the Public Health major as it is already a major option for them. However, if a SEBS student desires to declare another Bloustein School major (i.e. Health Administration) as their primary program, the student should apply for a school to school transfer.

Students in a Rutgers-New Brunswick professional school interested in one of our programs as a primary major should apply for a school to school transfer for consideration to the Direct Admit program.
