ABOUT THE AASP, THE HUNTER CORE, AND CUNYFIRST

MOST currently offered AASP courses satisfy the GER Pluralism & Diversity requirement as well as the new College Option that is part of Pathways. However, for students looking at the Schedule of Classes on CUNYfirst, there will be no mention of Pluralism & Diversity: courses will say that they satisfy either "College Option" or "Regular Liberal Arts." If you were an incoming student in Fall '13, you take courses under the so-called Hunter Core, but if you entered Hunter before fall '13, you still need to satisfy the old P&D that's part of the GER. All currently offered AASP courses will meet at least one of those requirements, so please visit our course listings for more information.
