*The Pathways curriculum is typically 42 credits. However, the Earth Science Teacher (7-12) B.A. major includes four courses (EESC 1101, BIOL 1001 or BIOL 1010, CHEM 1200, and PHYS 1100 or PHYS 1150 or PHYS 1005) that satisfy Pathways requirements. Therefore, students majoring in Earth Science Teacher (7-12) only need to complete 30 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.
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.
EESC 1101 and EESC 1201 can be taken in any order, but both should be finished after the first year.
