*The Pathways curriculum is typically 42 credits. However, the Early Childhood major includes two courses (MATH 1006 and ECAE 2004) that also satisfy Pathways requirements. Therefore, students majoring in Early Childhood only need to complete 36 additional Pathways credits.
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.
Students must complete a concentration of at least 30 credits in one of the following disciplines: American Studies, Anthropology & Archaeology, Art, Children's Studies, Classics, English, Environmental Studies, General Science, Health & Nutrition Sciences, History, Judaic Studies, Mathematics, Modern Languages, Music, Philosophy, Political Science, Psychology, Puerto Rican & Latino Studies, Sociology, Theater, Women's & Gender Studies.
Students should consult with advisors from their concentration department regarding concentration requirements. Students must maintain an overall 2.8 GPA, as well as a GPA of 3.0 or higher in ECAE courses.
Fingerprint clearance is required for all students enrolling education courses. Please read and follow the instructions posted on the Education Certification website at: http://www.brooklyn.cuny.edu/web/academics/schools/education/certification/fingerprints.php.
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.
