    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.

    *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.

    *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.

    *The Big Four are the four degree requirements you need to complete in order to graduate from the College of Arts and Science.

    *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 Bus
