This week, 2,700 students attended their first classes, made new connections, and explored new subject areas as part of their enrollment in the Columbia Summer Session. Current Columbia students, visiting undergraduate and graduate students, and adults and professionals are convening on campus or online this summer, using the summer term to get ahead in course credits or take a class in something new. The Summer Session offers courses in more than fifty fields, ranging from economics and environmental sciences to theater and international relations.

New York is a city that needs no introduction. From its landmark cultural sites—1,000+ art galleries, 300+ films, 80 television shows, 40+ theaters—to financial institutions such as the New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq and historic sites like Ellis Island, New York City is a global hub for go-getters who learn by doing.
