The Core

Columbia University's core requirements provide the foundation for a traditional liberal arts education, assuring that students develop critical skills in writing and quantitative reasoning while exposing them to a range of knowledge and disciplines. Flexibility within the Core allows students to choose from several different departments to fulfill specified requirements in science, literature, humanities, and social sciences, thereby encouraging students to explore new areas of inquiry and develop their intellectual interests.

Dual BA Program students will fulfill many of the Core requirements through transfer classes from Trinity . The courses completed are highly dependent on the major track pursued by the student at TCD. Columbia advisors will communicate with individual students regarding their progress during site visits in years one and two of the program.
