Students learn from our faculty to read research articles and to interpret the evidence that supports scientific "fact." We also discuss the scientific, societal, and ethical implications of genetic research.
All of our majors are required to conduct scientific research in the discipline with Rutgers faculty.
Students in the Genetics program of Rutgers University join a community of scholars. Students interact with each other and with faculty members and graduate students in their courses and through the active Association of Undergraduate Geneticists. Our alumni are highly successful in obtaining PhD, MD and other advanced degrees and in the scientific workforce. Considering Med School or Dental School? Genetics is a great major for either career.
