The degree maps are designed to help you take the right courses in the right order so you can graduate in four years (without requiring any summer or winter sessions). The degree maps also clearly illustrate what courses qualify as Pathways courses, major courses, and general elective courses—providing a credit breakdown for each area. Each degree map is created with an ideal course sequence in mind. However, there is room for you to make some adjustments so long as prerequisite requirements are satisfied.
In conjunction with the four-year degree map, you should review DegreeWorks and the Brooklyn College website for an approved list of courses in your major. Overall, it is best to review and assess your individual academic plan with a faculty adviser on a regular basis.
Generally, these degree maps are designed for first-year students starting in fall 2018 who know their intended major. If you are a transfer student or a continuing student undecided about your major, your path to graduation may look different. Still, you may find these maps helpful in terms of identifying course priorities within majors, and for comparing and contrasting different majors.
Degree maps can now be found within the particular major.
