Double Major

With careful planning and early consultation with advisors, it is possible for a student to complete the requirements for bachelor’s degree with a primary and a secondary major. The primary major determines the degree awarded, therefore a student with a primary major in Environmental Science and a secondary major in American Studies will receive a Bachelor of Science degree with both the primary and secondary degree listed on the diploma and official transcript. A student with a primary major in American Studies and a secondary major in Environmental Science will receive a Bachelor of Arts degree, with both the primary and secondary degree listed on the diploma and official transcript. Courses fulfilling the requirements for the primary major may count to fulfill requirements of the secondary major, but may not exceed one half of the credits required in the secondary major.

Ramapo College residency requirements apply, as well, thus one half of the requirements of both the primary and secondary major must be completed at Ramapo College. Double majors are not permitted within the School of Administration and Business, except for the Economics major. Some majors require specific residency requirements noted in the description of the major. Particular rules regarding School Core requirements for double majors are outlined below:

Both primary and secondary major from the same School: School Core requirements must be fulfilled.
Secondary major from the School of American and International Studies: School core for the secondary major is not required.

Secondary major from the School of Administration and Business majors except International Business: B/MECO 113 and BECO 114 are required but not the remaining courses in the SAB Liberal Arts core. If the secondary major is International Business, both the School Core for the primary major and the

School Core for International Business are required.

Secondary major from the School of Contemporary Arts: Both the School Core for the primary and the secondary major are required.

Secondary major from the School of Social Science and Human Services: The School Core for the secondary major is not required.

Secondary major from the School of Theoretical and Applied Science: both the School Core for the primary major and for the secondary major are required.
