Academic Programs

Columbia's academic programs, which draw a large and diverse student population, are at the heart of the Paris Center. They reflect Columbia's historic commitment to the value of studying abroad at both the graduate and undergraduate levels.


Credit-bearing and degree programs are offered at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Many of them are devised in collaboration with leading French institutional partners such as Sciences Po, the École des hautes études en sciences sociales, and the universities of Paris 1, Paris 4, and Paris 7.


In addition to its long-term academic offerings, the Center welcomes Columbia students and faculty for intensive seminars and workshops during the year and in the summer months. The Center has worked with the School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA), the School of the Arts (SOA), the Alliance Program, the Mailman School of Public Health, the School of Professional Studies (SPS).
