Joint Bachelor's Degree students will earn two bachelor's degrees—one from CityU and one from Columbia. Students within the Program may choose from a number of approved majors during their time at both CityU and Columbia.
By offering two distinct learning environments, the Program seeks to present a variety of experiences that allow students to challenge themselves and develop a richly textured understanding of an increasingly globalized world.
Majors and Concentrations
Gateway Education (GE) is the core of CityU's undergraduate experience. The goal of GE is to give students a broad sampling of different academic areas, exposing students to varied disciplines and increasing the value and breadth of their undergraduate education.
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.
Students who have been offered admission to the Program will be assigned a School of General Studies academic advisor, with whom they will consult for course selection and academic planning for the duration of their time at Columbia.
