In the case of a degree (major) that is jointly offered and the Colleges' requirements in this area are different, the student must complete the course that is specified in the curriculum for the degree, regardless of which college is the declared "home" of the student. This area of the Core Curriculum is driven by the requirements of the specific degree program, not by the general requirements of the College, if a degree is offered jointly.
