Majors and Minors
Fordham offers more than 70 majors, minors, and pre-professional programs. Each gives you the tools you need to think clearly, to debate forcefully, and to find possible solutions for every problem.
That’s also the job of our core curriculum, which primes you for critical thought even as you're considering your major.
We're a wide-ranging university in a big city—the possibilities are enormous. Select a category below to learn more.
Lincoln Center or Rose Hill?
Most majors are offered at both of our campuses, but there are a few that are exclusive to one location. For instance, dance and theatre are at Lincoln Center while biological sciences and chemistry are at Rose Hill. Make sure to note when you see (LC only) which means only at Lincoln Center and (RH only) which means only at Rose Hill.
Many of our students double major, double minor, and then take on a concentration for good measure. But if your particular areas of interest can't be fully satisfied by one of these combinations, then it's possible to pursue an individualized degree at Fordham, pending the approval of your dean. Learn more about the individualized major.
Through our Graduate School of Education, we offer a 5-Year Integrated Teacher Education Track which allows you to complete a BA/BS in a liberal arts and science major and a 36 or 45 credit Master of Science in Teaching (MST).
*Majors with an asterisk are available to students on both campuses, but certain required courses may only be offered at the campus indicated in parenthesis. 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 first-year academic advising.
**For Visual Arts, campus location may vary by area of concentration. The full major is offered at Lincoln Center. Please consult the Visual Arts Department prior to applying.
