COLLEGE OF ARTS &amp; SCIENCENEW YORK UNIVERSITY</p><p>Welcome to the College of Arts and Sciences presentation on your first year at New York University. We are excited that you have chosen to spend the next four years with us and look forward to helping you craft an exciting and engaging experience in your time at CAS. </p><p>*To give you a sense of what well be talking about, check out this general outline. As you move through the presentation, you can pause at any point.</p><p>*The liberal arts curriculum of NYUs College of Arts and Science seeks to educate students in the range of human experience and achievement and to provide them with the skills and breadth of perspective needed to become leaders in their professional lives and active participants in the communities in which they live. With a challenging liberal arts core, the Morse Academic Plan, at the center of its curriculum, the College emphasizes student inquiry and research; offers unique opportunities for international and preprofessional study; and makes use of the city as a site for learning and service. A liberal arts education is both personally enriching and highly practical in developing the skills and perspectives essential to assume a leadership role in the 21st century. </p><p>*The Big Four are the four degree requirements you need to complete in order to graduate from the College of Arts and Science.</p><p>*You must complete 128 Credits by the time you graduate. As most classes count for 4 credits, this is equivalent to taking 4 courses, or 16 credits, per semester for 8 semesters.Only 16 non-CAS credits may be counted towards this total. These could include courses taken at other NYU schools like the Stern School of Business or Tisch School of the Arts. CAS students cannot earn credit for School of Continuing and Professional Studies (SCPS) courses.</p><p>*Students must have a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher to graduate. This is equivalent to a C average. Students must also have a GPA of 2.0 or higher in their major courses.</p><p>*All students must complete a major before they graduate. Most majors require 10 courses or 40 credits over your four years, though a number require more. You must declare your major prior to completing 64 total credits; this typically happens during sophomore year. Students declare their major by visiting the department of the major they wish to declare, and they can change their major at any time prior to graduation.Double majors are often possible with appropriate planning.*The Morse Academic Plan, or MAP, is the group of core courses in the liberal arts for undergraduates at New York University. For students in the College of Arts and Science, MAP courses create a broad foundation on which you build your chosen field of study, your major. For students in other undergraduate divisions at NYU, the MAP has been adapted to provide a liberal arts core for a curriculum directed toward professional education. Because it is shared by students across different schools, majors, and programs, the MAP is also sometimes called the general education curriculum.</p><p>*We are now going to go into a more detailed explanation and breakdown of the MAP requirements. There are four parts to the MAP: Expository Writing, Foreign Language, Foundations of Contemporary Culture, and Foundations of Scientific Inquiry.</p><p>*The first part of the Morse Academic Plan is the Expository Writing requirement, and this requirement is designed to prepare students for the work they will do in all of their academic courses. All first-year students are required to satisfy their Expository Writing requirement during their first year at the College of Arts and Science. The Expository Writing courses provide instruction and practice in critical reading, creative thinking, and clear writing. They provide additional instruction in analyzing and interpreting written texts, the use of written texts as evidence, the development of ideas, and the writing of both exploratory and argumentative essays. There are a few options for fulfilling the Expository Writing requirement including:Writing the Essay: The general Writing the Essay course taken by a majority of students stresses exploration, inquiry, reflection, analysis, revision, and collaboration.WTE: Science. This course is specifically tailored for students who are interested in science or medicine. Course readings and assignments focus on current issues in the worlds of science and medicine. Students read and respond to essays by prominent scientists, doctors, and science writers, such as Stephen Jay Gould, Primo Levi, Evelyn Fox Keller, and Richard Selzer. WTE: Goddard. This course is part of the Living &amp; Learning options for residence halls. Students in Goddard who are interested in creative writing or live performance study and attend planned outings together. Writing the Essay assignments and discussions are shaped to invite students to incorporate these experiences into their class work.WTE: Linked. This course is an opportunity for students to combine Writing the Essay with Texts and Ideas, which is another MAP requirement, gaining a richer understanding of the ideas and authors in the Texts &amp; Ideas course through discussions and the development of essays. Students receive credit for both courses.International Writing Workshops: These courses are opportunities for international students. The International sequence of courses promotes familiarity with the writing needs and the cultural adjustments students may require to succeed in an American university setting. Through the completion of International Writing Workshop I and II, students will satisfy the Expository Writing requirement.</p><p>*The second part of the Morse Academic Plan is the foreign language requirement. The study of foreign languages is an integral part of a liberal arts education. It nurtures an awareness of the diversity of human culture and serves the practical need for language skills in fields such as government, business, and research. NYU is a particularly exciting setting for language study because of its location in a great cosmopolitan city, its international student body, its many renowned language programs and centers, and its rapidly expanding opportunities for study away.To fulfill the foreign language component of the MAP, students must show or attain proficiency in a foreign language through the intermediate level.*The third part of the Morse Academic Plan is Foundations of Contemporary Culture, which is referred to as FCC, and is the core curriculum in the arts, humanities, and social sciences.There are four components of FCC:Textsand Ideas - Texts and Ideas is the name for a diverse group of humanities courses that study challenging, influential texts about big ideas: freedom, the nature of the soul, the place of humans in the natural and animal world, beauty, citizenship, morality, the imagination, the use of the past, and many more.Cultures and Contexts - Cultures and Contexts prepares students for life in a globalized world by introducing them to the ways humans see themselves as members of social, religious, national, and regional groups. Individual courses focus on political, social, or cultural collectives that are distinct from the dominant traditions of contemporary North America, such as central Asia, Russia, Korea, or ancient Egypt; some courses study diaspora formations and emergent traditions.Societiesand the Social Sciences - We live in a world molded by massive social, political, and economic transformations, and to be thoughtful, responsible citizens we need to understand them.
