The Columbia Benefit
The School of General Studies is part of Columbia University, an Ivy
League university in the heart of New York City. GS students benefit
from full access to a Columbia education: they take the same courses,
study with they same professors, and pursue the same majors as all
Columbia undergraduates.

The General Studies Difference
GS is for nontraditional students-those with a break of one year or more
in their educational paths since high school-who want to pursue a
traditional, rigorous, undergraduate education from one of America's top
colleges at their own pace.

Who is right for GS? GS students are a diverse group. Not only are GS
students ethnically and racially diverse, but they are also diverse as
measured by their professional and personal experience and maturity.
Here are a few examples of students who might be right for GS:

* A student who has taken a 2-3 year break during their college
* A woman who is returning after many years to complete the
college degree that she left unfinished to start a successful business
* A professional athlete or dancer who wants to prepare for a new
career or attend school while training and performing
* Military veterans who enlisted before attending or completing

The average age of the GS student body is 29. Most GS students have 8 to
10 more years of life experience than traditional college students and
more than 70 percent of GS graduates go on to pursue advanced degrees.

Academic Program
The four undergraduate colleges of Columbia University (Columbia
College, the Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science,
Barnard College, and General Studies) all share the same pool of
academic resources provided by the University. That pool consists of
1,500 courses taught by a faculty of over 850 in nearly 40 academic
departments and research institutes.

GS students may also take part in joint or combined programs with
several of the graduate and professional schools at the University. In
addition, students may participate in the several study abroad programs
run by Columbia in Paris (Reid Hall), Berlin (with Freie Universität),
and Kyoto, or in one of the summer programs in China, the Caribbean,
Brazil, and France.

Columbia's urban campus in New York City rivals the campus of any other
Ivy League university. Designed by McKim, Mead, and White, one of the
nation's leading architectural firms at the time of construction, the
Morningside Heights campus contains many buildings classified as
historic landmarks.

Lincoln Center and midtown Manhattan are 10 to 20 minutes away by subway
or bus; Wall Street is within a 30-minute subway ride.
