New York - Paris Program

Columbia Global Centers | Europe

This one-year intensive liberal arts program with a strong studio component introduces students to the disciplines of architecture, urban studies, and planning as practiced in New York (fall location) and Paris (spring location). With a cross-cultural perspective, and guided by leading specialists, students explore the historical, social and political development of urban form, and the roles played by architects, planners and preservationists in this development. Open to applicants from diverse academic and professional backgrounds, the program offers two studio options, Architecture and Urban Studies, with a core curriculum supporting both concentrations.
