Dual BA Program students must successfully complete the requirements for a major in order to graduate. Concentrations (minors) are optional.

Credits from Trinity College Dublin do not automatically count toward a student's Columbia major or concentration. Transfer credits toward the major/concentration are accepted at the department’s discretion. The Director of Undergraduate Studies in each department is authorized to accept up to 12 GS-approved transfer credits toward the major. Some departments accept fewer than 12 credits; students must check individual department policies concerning transfer credits.
