Declare a Major, Minor, or Certificate

All Ramapo College undergraduate students pursuing a bachelor’s degree must declare a major in their sophomore year before completing 64 credits..  A student may change their major at any time during a semester.  The requirements for a major, minor, concentration and certificate will be based on the year the student matriculates to the college.  Non-matriculated students cannot declare a major until they apply to Ramapo College through the Office of Admissions.
