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: General Education - Effective Fall 2019  

In the case of the Environmental Studies major, the courses that meet CCC are:

Course CUNY Common Core Requirement

PGEOG 13000 (STEM)   Scientific World and Life and Physical Sciences

Please note that no more than two courses from any one department will count for the CUNY Common Core Requirement.

Based on placement exams or transferred courses, students may place into some more advanced Mathematics and Statistics courses without taking Hunter College prerequisites. See the Mathematics and Statistics  department for details. Students with appropriate background may be exempted from GEOG 10100  and/or PGEOG 13000 (STEM) .  Please see the Department of Geography and Environmental Science  for details.
