Shopping for out-of-program selectives? You are required to take two courses to satisfy the breadth requirement of TC. They can now be in C&T if they are not program requirements, or they can be in ANY other department. The good news is there are lots of choices. The challenge is that making a choice can feel overwhelming. What you select really depends on your preferences and schedule. One course must be literacy related; the other can be anything you like. Look for 2 or 3 credit courses only. You may also take courses at Columbia or Barnard if your schedule will accommodate them.
Fulltime students will take one or both of their non-program selectives in spring. Part-time students should keep in mind that summer is a good time for these since most core classes are not offered during summer.
The following are not necessarily recommendations, but they are suggestions that are currently open for fall and do not interfere with both sections of core courses.
