About Social Science: Society and Culture

Ramapo College’s Degree Completion Program (DCP) provides returning adult students ages 25 and older a fully-mapped out pathway to finishing their undergraduate degree on an accelerated schedule.  The Degree Completion Program offers two accelerated contract majors:

  1. Social Science with a Society and Culture concentration.
  2. Contemporary Arts with a Professional Communications concentration.

These accelerated majors combine on-line and evening classroom study on a part-time, year-round schedule (fall, winter, spring and summer).

In general, DCP students should have at least 64 credits, either through an Associate’s Degree or through a combination of transfer credits from previous institutions.  Students must be part of a Degree Completion Program cohort in order to enroll either in one of the DCP accelerated majors or in a DCP section of a course.


DCP majors provide the entirety of any courses required by the major, along with any school core requirements, as part of the mapped curriculum.  The Degree Completion Program assumes that a student has successfully completed Ramapo’s general education requirements prior to enrollment.  However, students who need to complete outstanding General Education requirements or elective credits can do so through advisement from the program director.
