About the Major Requirement
The major is a defined program of study of at least 18.0 units from the SRJC list of approved majors. The program of study in a major provides coherence, focus, depth, sequencing, and synthesis of learning. In addition, majors are intended to provide the student with a foundation for transfer, training for an occupational field, or sufficient depth in a field of knowledge to contribute to lifelong interest.
