The Major


Undergraduate majors are offered throughout the College in approximately fifty fields. They prepare students for a variety of careers as well as for professional and graduate schools. Advisors assist students in making their initial choice of major and, on occasion, in reconsidering chosen fields of study. Every student must complete an approved major. Each department or program sets specific course requirements for its majors, which are outlined in the departmental listings in this Bulletin. Students should consult their advisor periodically for updates on major requirements. While some courses in the major may be completed at other accredited colleges, at least 60% of the major must be taken at City College.
