QC Core Curriculum (CUNY Pathways) Requirements
Effective Fall 2013, entering freshmen and transfer students will follow a revised liberal arts curriculum to meet the requirements of the CUNY Pathways Initiative. The Pathways General Education framework is common to all senior CUNY colleges. This guarantees that the core curriculum requirements fulfilled at one CUNY college will carry over seamlessly if a student transfers to another CUNY college.
The QC Core consists of 14 courses, a minimum of 42 credits, and contains three parts: the Required Core, Flexible Core, and College Core (Students in STEM majors may have a higher number of credits). The QC Core is also flexible, allowing you to meet requirements in a way that fits your individual interests.
One course, English 110, satisfies the College Writing I requirement. In all other areas, students may satisfy Core requirements by choosing courses from approved lists. Students are also required to complete two Writing Intensive (W) courses, which may be taken within the QC Core, a major, or electives.
