Earning 120 Credits
Credits for the Hunter Core and for a major usually do not add up to 120. A student may reach the necessary 120 credits by taking elective courses, or completing an additional major, a minor field of study (minor), or a certificate program.
Please note: New York State law requires a minimum number of liberal arts and science courses for undergraduate degrees, as follows:
- BA 75% of credits towards the degree, 90 credits
- BS 50% of credits towards the degree, 60 credits
- BMus, BFA 30% of credits towards the degree, 40 credits
