Cost and Funding Opportunities

Both the M.A. and the M.A.T. require 30 credits. The current per-credit costs for both New Jersey residents and non-residents can be seen here: https://gsn.newark.rutgers.edu

The Department offers a number of funding packages, comprising partial tuition remission and a stipend, to incoming students. Awards are made on a competitive basis. 

We also are now offering Historical Engagement Fellowships, for new students who are committed to making history accessible to the public. These fellowships are designed for those who work, or aspire to work, as social studies teachers; employees of historical sites or archives; and/or those interested in writing (in print or online formats) on historical topics for a wide readership. For more information, see: http://ncas.rutgers.edu/rutgers-university-newark-historical-engagement-fellowships
