About Us

Graduate School-Newark

The Graduate School-Newark supports scholarly inquiry and intellectual growth across 25 disciplines ranging from the arts, humanities, sciences, business, urban and global studies.

Graduate students acquire analytical and creative skills necessary for original scholarship, research and problem solving, and they do so on the most diverse campus of any national university in the United States. Business and criminal justice, science and public administration, urban studies and global affairs – these are just some of the many areas that converge here at the Graduate School-Newark, creating opportunities for interdisciplinary research as well as various dual degrees.

Our masters and doctoral candidates take advantage of a host of unique resources. Rutgers Newark’s Institute of Jazz Studies is the world’s largest archive of jazz music and material. The Masters of Fine Art in Creative Writing program is one of the best-funded opportunities for emerging writers nationwide. We have a top-25 graduate nursing program according to U.S.  News & World Report 2015 and the best public business program in NYC region. Our science programs host well-resourced centers such as the Center for Behavioral & Neural Systems recently awarded a $1.5 million grant from the National Institutes of Health’s BRAIN Initiative.
