Core

While enrolled at the School of General Studies at Columbia University, Joint Bachelor’s Degree Program students will complete the Columbia Core Curriculum, complementing the CityU Gateway Education requirements.  As with CityU’s GE courses, the Core is the cornerstone of a Columbia education, encouraging students to become critical thinkers and analyzers of the world around them as they are exposed to a range of knowledge and disciplines. Flexibility within the Core allows students to choose from several different departments to fulfill requirements in science, literature, humanities, and social sciences. More information on the Columbia Core is available by visiting the School of General Studies website.
