Columbia and Barnard Students

Columbia and Barnard Students

The Columbia University Summer Session takes a unique approach to learning. It offers curated educational, social, and cultural experiences to connect students with each other and Columbia faculty as well as opportunities to explore New York landmarks and institutions, from the Metropolitan Museum of Art to Broadway.

Columbia and Barnard students may choose to enroll in summer courses to catch up or get ahead in their academic programs, fulfill prerequisites such as Core requirements, or explore new fields. Courses are available in more than 50 subject areas, including: art and culture; science and environment; and economics and finance.

Whether you’re interested in exploring a budding passion, or fulfilling degree requirements, consult with your advisor for approvals and to ensure that you meet eligibility requirements to register or enroll in Columbia Summer courses.
