Course Descriptions

The CUNY Start program provides instruction in two content areas:  Math and Reading/Writing. The full-time program is 25 hours per week, providing both Pre-College Math and Academic Reading/Writing. The part-time program enrolls students for a single content area, either Pre-College Math or Academic Reading/Writing.  CUNY Start also provides weekly advisement seminars for college success.

Building on GED-level math skills, Pre-College Math focuses on more complex topics in algebra.  Topics include functions in new settings and the manipulation of expressions. Understanding is maximized through in-depth study of core math concepts in an interactive, supportive learning environment.

Through an interdisciplinary curriculum, students build key reading and writing skills and broaden their general background knowledge. Skill development includes argumentative and analytic writing, and college-level reading and study skills.

All students in CUNY Start participate in weekly seminars to explore their academic identity and learn about college demands and campus resources. College advisement helps students align their career goals with educational requirements and prepares them for academic achievement and graduation.
