Ph.D. Language Requirement - No Credit

All Ph.D. students must demonstrate, at any time during their course of study at DGA, a working familiarity with at least (1) modern language other than English. Students upon admission submit to the Associate Director a plan for the completion of this requirement. Students can demonstrate this knowledge by satisfying one of the following:

  • Completing four (4) semesters of a language at Rutgers University or other approved and accredited institutions
  • Passing reading-knowledge examinations at Rutgers University (administered by DGA or the Rutgers-New Brunswick Language Institute)
  • Graduating from a foreign university where courses are offered in a language other than English

Language course credits do not count toward the requirements necessary for a Ph.D.
