Columbia is continually working towards building a network of opportunities around the world designed to provide a broad portfolio of international options to its undergraduates. Reviewed and approved by the Faculty Committee for Study Abroad, Columbia students can choose to study abroad on over 200 programs in over 150 cities for academic credit.
These are programs which are managed by the Office of Global Programs on behalf of the academic departments at Columbia and our partner institutions. All students including Columbia/Barnard, consortium member students, and students from other universities can find detailed information about each of the programs by clicking on the program in the menu to theright.
For students who are interested in studying abroad in other locations, there are a large number of approved programs, exchange and direct enrollment institutions. These programs may be managed by another university's international office (e.g. Middlebury's Programs in Russia), an academic consortium (e.g. CIEE in Brazil), or an outside organization in partnership with local institutions (e.g. Interstudy at the University of Cape Town).
