Undergraduate Curriculum

Pre-Weissman School of Arts and Science (WSAS) Requirements

Dean of the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences Jeffrey M. Peck shares this about our Weissman School.  “The Mildred and George Weissman School of Arts and Sciences, is a vibrant intellectual and cultural center. With 13 outstanding academic departments, numerous interdisciplinary programs, and a wide range of majors, the Weissman Schoo of Arts and Sciences is an essential part of the Baruch College experience.”

All students follow a common core curriculum – Tiers I, II, and III, as outlined in the Undergraduate Bulletin.  All students wishing to pursue a major in the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences are asked to complete the Major Eligibility Form to state their intended major and Tier III minor.  Students will be notified by the posted dates about their status.  All students must meet with a faculty advisor within the appropriate academic department(s) to complete an official major specialization form. This should be done as soon as possible both to ensure that the major selection is official and, more important, to receive advisement concerning major requirements, course selection, etc. If you have additional questions or concerns, please contact Stephanie Govan (646 312-3870) or Sonya Wahab (646 312-3890).


  • Foreign Language (6–8 credits)
  • Natural Sciences (4 credits in addition to the 4 credits of the common core). This second laboratory science course must be in a different area from the one taken to fulfill the common core requirement.  For this purpose, ENV and BIO courses are considered to be in the same area.
  • Cultural Studies (3 credits) - Students select one course in Black, Latin Studies, Latin American, Asian and Asian American studies, or Jewish studies.
