core curriculum

*core curriculum* is the closest we have in the U.S. to this concept. You might even want to call it the *Freshman year core curriculum*. This is an approach put in place about six years ago by the college I retired from, and reflects a national trend in the same direction. It is supposed to allow freshmen to enjoy a *common experience* (another "term" that grew out of this attempt at maximizing the college's resources, plus aiming for greater student retention).

Yo le dejaría el nombre del CBC tal cual está y entre paréntesis le pondría (General Basic Course y alguna explicación acerca de que se trata de una especie de ingreso a la universidad en el que se dictan varias materias comunes a diversas carreras cuyos exámenes deben ser aprobados antes de iniciar formalmente la carrera, un filtro, bah).

No olvides que los nombres propios no se traducen, por lo tanto le pondría algo así como:

CBC (Common Basic Course, which is a course that has to be taken by all students prior to starting with the chosen career in itself. It is composed by a number of subjects, common to several careers. The students have to pass the exams on these subjects to be allowed to their respective careers).

Suerte! :)
