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.

In the case of the Statistics major with a concentration in Quantitative Biology, the courses that meet CCC are:

Course CUNY Common Core Requirement
MATH 12500 (STEM)     Math/Quantitative Reasoning
MATH 15000 (STEM)   Math/Quantitative Reasoning
MATH 15500 (STEM)   Math/Quantitative Reasoning
STAT 21200    Math/Quantitative Reasoning
STAT 21300 (STEM)   Math/Quantitative Reasoning

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 (63-80 credits)

Core Courses (30-47 credits)

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.
