Gateway Courses Into Majors
Although complete major requirements vary in most cases from one CUNY college to another, faculty committees have recently designated a minimum of three "gateway" courses leading into several of CUNY's most popular majors. Students who anticipate pursuing one of these majors can take the designated courses and will be able to transfer them for major credit seamlessly between CUNY colleges that offer the major. Since course titles may vary across the colleges, it is essential that students and advisors consult their colleges for more information.
|Pathways Gateway Course||BCC Course|
|Introductory Majors Biology (Molecular and Cellular Biology)||BIO 11 General Biology I|
|Introductory Majors Biology (Organismic Biology)||BIO 12 General Biology II|
|General Chemistry I||CHM 11 General College Chemistry I|
|General Chemistry II||CHM 12 General College Chemistry II|
|Pre-Calculus||MTH 30 Pre-Calculus Mathematics|
*CUNY colleges differ in the sequencing of their two Introductory Biology courses. A faculty committee outlined topics to be covered in each course. One course will cover Cellular and Molecular Biology, while the other course will cover Organismic Biology. The order in which the sequence is offered is to be left to the discretion of each college.
