The Core Curriculum was originally developed as the main curriculum used by Columbia University 's Columbia College in Today, customized versions of the Core Curriculum are also completed by students in the School of Engineering and Applied Science and the School of General Studies the other two undergraduate colleges of Columbia University. The curriculum began in with "Contemporary Civilization", about the origins of western civilization. It became the framework for many similar educational models throughout the United States. A major addition to the core was made in the s, when a science literacy course, "Frontiers of Science", was added. US universities, including Harvard , had seen a trend towards more elective programs during the late 19th century.

By Bwog Staff on May 10, Comments. The following was sent to us by CC first years Miles Hilton, Lara Tang, and a third writer who wished to remain anonymous. This piece does not reflect the opinions of Bwog or its staff. It was the first part of Columbia thrust upon prospies and first years alike and many incoming students were thrilled to be handed copies of The Iliad over the summer. When I picked up my Alumni Association-stickered edition, I had the sense that some kind of essential knowledge was being passed to me from the older generation. Yet as I read through the syllabus I began to wonder what I was supposed to be learning, especially about rape and the treatment of marginalized peoples. I went through the syllabus page by page becoming probably the only student to do so and annotated every instance of rape, assault, or other non-consensual activity.
