*The Pathways curriculum is typically 42 credits. However, the Speech (Communication Studies) major includes a course (CASD 1707) that also satisfies a Pathways requirement. Therefore, students majoring in Speech (Communication Studies) only need to complete 39 additional Pathways credits.
*Students must complete two of the following CASD courses: CASD 1618, CASD 2719, CASD 3235, CASD 4260, CASD 4625, CASD 4646, CASD 4666.
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.
