Majors and Minors at Lincoln Center

Students in Lincoln Campus Plaza

The college offers majors in the humanities, social sciences, and interdisciplinary natural sciences, as well as outstanding programs in theatre, dance, visual arts, music, education, and social work. A vast array of internship opportunities, including in our new signature program for paid Serving the City internships, enable students to connect real-world experience to their academic learning and make the most of the unparalleled opportunities New York City offers. Through our affiliation with The Ailey School, our students study at one of the country's premier schools of dance. 

Thanks to our shared Manhattan campus, many students take advantage of Fordham’s comprehensive offerings, such as combined undergraduate/graduate programs offered jointly with Fordham's schools of Business, Law, Education, Social Services, and Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, as well as undergraduate minors offered through Fordham's highly-ranked Gabelli School of Business. Distinguished authors, actors, politicians, and intellectuals regularly enrich the life of the college with talks and seminars.

Declaring a Major, Minor, or Concentration

To declare a major, minor, or concentration, please complete the “Major/Minor/Concentration Form." To access it, please log in to Fordham.edu, navigate to the “Students” page, and then click on the “Student Electronic Forms” menu. We encourage you to discuss your plans with your advisor (First-and-Second year students) or the Assistant Dean for Juniors or Seniors, as appropriate before declaring. Please also note that some majors have requirements for declaring (such as GPA minimums or application processes). You can learn about the requirements for each program by clicking on the relevant link.

*All majors are also available as minors, except for Dance, Integrative Neuroscience, and Natural Science.  Please check each major's link for information about their accompanying minor.

Applicants interested in pursuing one of these majors, but who wish to apply to a different campus than that listed, can seek approval from the Dean of the College after enrollment as part of freshman academic advising.
