Hunter Core Requirement
Several courses within this major may fulfill parts of the Hunter Core Requirement (CUNY Common Core Requirement [CCCR], Concurrent Requirements). When selecting courses, it may be to a student’s advantage to choose courses that count toward the Hunter Core Requirement and also advance the student on the path to the major. Details on the Hunter Core Requirement can be found here: Hunter Core Requirement.
In the case of the Mathematics major with a concentration in Quantitative Biology, the courses that meet CCCR are:
Please note that no more than two courses from any one department will count for the CUNY Common Core Requirement.
Courses Required for the Major (63-78 credits)
Core Courses (30-45 credits)
Based on placement exams or transferred courses, students may place into some more advanced courses without taking Hunter College prerequisites. See the Mathematics and Statistics department for details.
