*The Pathways curriculum is typically 42 credits. However, the Financial Mathematics B.S. major includes a course (MATH 1011) that also satisfies a Pathways requirement. Therefore, students majoring in Financial Mathematics B.S. only need to complete 39 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.

Candidates for a B.S. degree with a major in Financial Mathematics must complete at least 60 credits in science and mathematics; 24 of these 60 credits must be completed in advanced courses in the Mathematics Department. These 24 credits must be completed at Brooklyn College with a grade of C- or higher in each course.

The following courses may be applied toward the 60 credits in science and mathematics:
