MCC Core Courses

Required core courses total 12 credits toward the degree. MCC has a 3-course core curriculum (MCC-UE 001, 003, 014). You must complete the 3-course core by the end of your first semester as a junior. Majors will have to take all three core courses, and minors will take two out of three core courses.

You must earn a B- or better to use the course toward the MCC major or the minor. If you receive a grade lower than a B-, you may retake the course once to improve the grade, but only one retaken course is allowed. Additionally, you may only retake a course once. This means that students receiving below a B- in two or more MCC core courses (even if taken in the same semester) will have to explore with their advisor other options for majoring at NYU.
