As part of the requirements for a baccalaureate degree, all students must fulfill a Tier III concentration to graduate. The concentration requirement consists of three courses of study (9-12 credits) outside of students majors. Of the three courses, two must be taken at the 3000 level or higher. Courses used to satisfy Tier II may not also be used to fulfill Tier III minor requirements. The third course in Tier III is to be the 4000-, 5000-, or 6000-level capstone course created or designated by each department in the concentration. Capstone courses are research oriented and communication intensive. The capstone course can be taken only after students have completed two courses in their disciplinary concentration at the 3000 level or higher, and it must be taken at Baruch College. In order to graduate, a student must have a grade point average of at least 2.0 in the three courses that make up his or her Tier III minor.
