Academic Organization

Ramapo College is uniquely organized into Schools rather than departments. Each School is composed of faculty members from several related disciplines and each School projects its own academic identity and thematic approach in the programs it sponsors. The five Schools offering major programs are:
  • Administration and Business
  • American and International Studies
  • Contemporary Arts
  • Social Science and Human Services
  • Theoretical and Applied Science.
Academic Schools/Major

All students associate with a particular School when they choose a major, and thereby establish close contacts with faculty and other students sharing similar interests. The choice of School does not restrict the choice of courses, however. Ramapo’s comprehensive General Education Program consists of courses from every School, and students are encouraged to take minors and/or other coursework from across the College.

The courses and requirements for each program are governed by a convening group comprised of faculty members who teach in the discipline area and led by a Convener. Some disciplines are found in more than one School; therefore, faculty in convening groups may be from more than one School.

Students who have chosen a major/minor or who are interested in a certain program should consult with the appropriate Convener and an advisor who is a member of that convening group. A list of Conveners is available from each School and from the Advisement Center.

More information concerning courses and disciplines may be found in the Academic Course Descriptions section of this Catalog.
