  • Mathematics or Statistics—one course in either math or statistics;
  • Natural or Physical Science—one approved laboratory course that employs the process of scientific inquiry; and,
  • Social Sciences—two courses in the social sciences 

Course work for the Columbian College general education curriculum is distributed as follows:

  • Global or Cross-Cultural Perspective—one approved course that analyzes the ways in which institutions, practices, and problems transcend national and regional boundaries;
