College Option/Tier III concentrations (liberal arts minors) and their communication intensive capstones allow students to focus on a single area in the liberal arts. The concentration requirement consists of three courses of study (9-12 credits) outside of the student’s major (students pursuing ad hoc majors cannot choose to minor in disciplines that are represented by more than two courses in their majors). Of the three courses, two must be taken at the 3000-level or higher. Courses used to satisfy Required and/or Flexible Core requirements or to satisfy Tier II requirements may not also be used to fulfill College Option/Tier III liberal arts minor requirements. The third course in the minor 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 is taken after the student has completed two courses in his or her minor program at the 3000-level or higher, and it must be taken at Baruch College. Students may not complete more than two minors.

Pathways Curriculum: There is no GPA stipulation attached to the College Option courses, but in order to graduate with the liberal arts minor included on the final transcript, a student must have a grade point average of at least 2.00 in the three courses that make up his or her liberal arts minor.

Baruch Common Core Curriculum: 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.
