Individualized Major

Students are permitted to submit a plan of studies in a concentration that involves courses in two or more departments. A committee of faculty members from those departments will consider the proposal and, if they decide that it is both academically sound and practically workable, will notify the class dean of the proposal. If the class dean approves the proposal, the student may undertake the intended major. The faculty committee will supervise these studies, make necessary changes and, along with the class dean, recommend graduation. Interested students should consult their class dean.


To permit students to design programs of study that fit their own needs and interests, Fordham College at Rose Hill, Fordham College at Lincoln Center, and Fordham School of Professional and Continuing Studies provide the option of a personalized interdisciplinary major.
