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 Information Systems must complete at least 60 credits in science and mathematics and advanced courses numbered 2000 or above in the Departments of Accounting, Computer and Information Science, Economics, Business Management, and/or Finance. Among the 60 credits, 24 credits must be completed in advanced courses in the Departments of Accounting, Computer and Information Science, Economics, Business Management, and/or Finance. 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 Information Systems (http://www.brooklyn.cuny.edu/web/aca_naturalsciences_cis/Prerequisite_Diagram_IS_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.
