School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA)

The School of International and Public Affairs offers two Certification of Professional Achievement (CPA) programs over the summer:

Students may also apply to take individual SIPA courses without pursuing a CPA. Columbia College and General Studies students can take a limited amount of graduate level and courses from professional schools and count them towards their degrees (4 credits and 6 credits, respectively). Please discuss these courses with your advisor before moving forward with scheduling to ensure credit will be counted.

Check the Directory of Classes for the most up-to-date course information.
