Science and Math Requirements

BS, Communicative Sciences and Disorders

Undergraduate students at New York University are required to take a minimum of two science courses: one in biological/life sciences and one in physical sciences. These courses satisfy the NYU Liberal Arts Core Curriculum requirements, and as a result, have a CORE prefix in the course title rather than a BIO, CHEM, or PHYS prefix. Despite the CORE prefix, these courses satisfy science and statistics prerequisites for CSD study at the graduate level.

The guide below explains how courses with the CORE prefix equate to various NYU requirements. Please note: courses with a BIO, CHEM, or PHYS prefix are not listed below, but also count toward NYU's undergraduate science requirement.
