For all undergraduate students, a Columbia College Chicago education is rooted in the strength of our LAS Core Curriculum. The Honors Program offers an enhanced LAS Core experience tailored to our high-achieving undergraduate students who seek greater academic challenge.

Honors courses bring together students who have demonstrated an aptitude for learning at a very high level with instructors who are prepared to guide them through an advanced learning experience. Honors students immerse themselves in course content, while bringing to the classroom the perspectives of their varied majors. These exchanges between and among Columbia’s disciplines make the Honors Program a hub for collaborative opportunities that transcend the classroom.
