Academic Programs

Academic Credit-Bearing Programs

These 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. Many 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.

Short-Term Residencies and Non-Credit Bearing Programs

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), and the Center on Global Energy Policy (CGEP).
