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 choose an additional Ancient or Medieval/Early Modern period JUST course from the following: (Ancient:) JUST 3014, JUST 3015, JUST 3023, JUST 4024, (Medieval/Early Modern :) JUST 3013, JUST 3033, JUST 3035, JUST 3036, JUST 4034; or an appropriate course with approval of the Chair.

Please note U.S. and Israel Yeshiva transfer credits will not count toward the major, but the capstone course taken at Brooklyn College by students seeking transfer credits will count toward the major. JUST 2545 and 3025 do not serve as a capstone course.
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.
