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 course.

The Philosophy and Business BA is recommended for students planning careers in business. It is unique in that students are not necessarily required to take courses in a particular order. There are various course-sequences students can follow to complete the major. The order outlined above is simply one suggestion, among many, and meant more as a general guide for Philosophy majors. Therefore, please feel free to make some adjustments, so long as prerequisite requirements are observed.

*Students must complete one of the following business concentrations:

Marketing/Management: BUSN 3240 or PSYC 3172, BUSN 3100, BUSN 3130, BUSN 3200 ,or

Finance: ACCT 2001, BUSN 3400 or ECON 3400, and two of the following: ECON 3320, FINC 3310, FINC 3330

The department Chair, with the approval of the Chair of the department's curriculum committee, may allow substitutions for one or more course requirements, consistent with the educational goals of the program.

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 regularly.
