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.
Candidates for a B.S. degree with a major in Computer Science must complete at least 60 credits in science and mathematics; 24 of these 60 credits must be completed in advanced courses numbered 2000 and above in the Department of Computer and Information Science. These 24 credits must be completed at Brooklyn College with a grade of C or higher in each course.
In conjunction with the four-year degree map, you should review the prerequisite flowchart for Computer Science (http://www.brooklyn.cuny.edu/web/aca_naturalsciences_cis/Prerequisite_Diagram_CS_Java.pdf), 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.
