*The Pathways curriculum is typically 42 credits. However, the Economics B.A. major includes a course (BUSN 3400 or ECON 3400 or MATH 1501) that also satisfies a Pathways requirement. Therefore, students majoring in Economics B.A. only need to complete 39 additional Pathways credits.

Students must achieve a grade of C- or better in each course submitted in satisfaction of Department requirements, and an average grade of C for courses satisfying said major requirements. At least 15 credits in advanced courses (3000-level or higher) in the Economics department must be completed at Brooklyn College with a grade of C- or higher in each course.

The four-year degree map is designed to help you take the right courses in the right order so you can graduate in four years. It also helps you distinguish what courses qualify as Pathways courses, or Major courses, or General Elective courses. Ideally, you should follow the four-year degree map as closely as possible, but you are free to make some adjustments so long as the prerequisite requirements are satisfied.

In conjunction with the four-year degree map, you should review Degree Works, and the Brooklyn College website, for an approved list of courses in your major. Overall, it is best to review your academic plan with your advisor on a regular basis.
