Pathways General Education Requirements
The new General Education Requirement at City College, and all of CUNY, is called Pathways. It provides a set of requirements that every student who enters City starting in Fall 2013 must complete to earn a degree. Pathways General Education Requirements at City College consist of:
I. Common Core (30 credits)
- Required (Fixed) Common Core (12 credits / 4 courses)
- Flexible Common Core (18 credits / 6 courses )
II. College Option (12 credits / 4 courses)
Because many Common Core courses can simultaneously count toward the satisfaction of major requirements for specific majors, students who have chosen or have a specific major in mind should consult with an advisor to see which Common Core choices will help them complete their degrees most efficiently.
Students with a particular major in mind can obtain information about Pathways major gateway courses at http://www.cuny.edu/academics/initiatives/pathways/majors.html . Click here for a list of CCNY gateway courses.
