Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychiatric Rehabilitation and Psychology




 

Admissions

The Bachelor of Science in Psychiatric Rehabilitation and Psychology is a unique dual major program that is offered jointly by the Rutgers School of Health Professions and several affiliate schools.   Currently our affiliates are:  Rutgers Newark College of Arts and Sciences (NCAS), Kean University, Georgian Court University (GCU) and Felician College.     

To seek admission to the program, begin by applying to one of these affiliate schools.    Once you are accepted by the affiliate school and have completed the required number of general education and psychology courses you will complete a second application for admission to the Rutgers School of Health Professions (SHP).  Students who start the dual major program at Rutgers NCAS, GCU or Felician usually apply to SHP in the Fall of their junior year so that they can begin their psychiatric rehabilitation courses in January of their junior year.   Students coming into the program through Kean University may apply once they have completed 40 credits at Kean, including at least 3 psychology courses.   Graduates of the Rutgers SHP Associate of Science Degree Program in Psychosocial Rehabilitation should also start by applying to one of the affiliate schools and should consult the Program Director about the best time to apply.  

Requirements for admission to the professional phase of the program at Rutgers SHP include:

  • Cumulative GPA of 2.5 and a GPA of 3.0 in psychology courses
  • Two letters of recommendation, at least one from a college professor
  • Submission of a personal statement about career goals and reasons for applying to the dual major program
