Prospective Students

Senior Associate Dean's Welcome

I am pleased to welcome you to the School of Graduate Studies (SGS) on the Newark Health Science Campus where we invest time and resources into every student’s individual academic development. We help students define their path in graduate education and post-graduation success.

Graduates from our Master’s and Ph.D. programs are pursuing careers in medicine, dentistry, biopharma research, business development and management, teaching and education, government and policy, nonprofit organizations and many more.

Within our Medical and Dental Scholars tracks, Master’s students who meet certain criteria can take classes in the Rutgers New Jersey Medical School (NJMS) or the Rutgers School of Dental Medicine (RSDM) and will be guaranteed an interview with NJMS or RSDM with appropriate academic achievement in the program.

Master’s students in the Biomedical Scholars track have the unique opportunity to meet scientists as well as business professionals from the biopharma industry through a variety of courses and structured networking events.

Ph.D. and Master’s Students are actively involved in cutting-edge research in biomedical science through their Ph.D. Thesis, Master’s Thesis, Research in Biomedical Sciences and/or Biomedical Training Internship.

I encourage you to explore our Master’s Program, Multidisciplinary PhD Program or Certificate Programs and contact us with any questions. At the SGS Newark Health Science Campus, we are committed to facilitating successful graduate studies for all of our students.
