Declaring a Major

Steps to Declaration

We encourage you to discuss your interests with your advisor and schedule meetings with the department associate chair or program director to learn more. Please consult the list of departmental/program contacts for FCRH students.

When you are ready to declare, you will complete a "Major/Minor/Concentration Form" available under "Student Electronic Forms" on your Fordham portal.

Deadlines and Suggestions

All FCRH students must declare a major by the second week of February of their sophomore year. Otherwise, the Dean's Office will place a hold on your registration for the following fall.

It is suggested, however, that you plan your courses for the spring semester of sophomore year with a potential major in mind, even if it is not yet officially declared.
