LAS Core Curriculum

Columbia College Chicago offers undergraduate students educational opportunities in the visual, performing, media, and communication arts within the context of a comprehensive liberal education. At Columbia, this liberal education is housed in the Liberal Arts and Sciences (LAS) Core Curriculum—which is required of all undergraduate, degree-seeking students.

The number of LAS Core credits an undergraduate student must complete in order to graduate depends on the type of degree he or she is pursuing. BA students must complete 42 credits; BS students must complete 39 credits; and BFA and BMus students must complete 36 credits.
