Barnard physics professor integral to international team developing innovative gamma-ray telescope.
Our Partnership with Columbia University
No one labels you with a Barnard sticker. You’ll have the resources of the larger university and the support, family, and feminism of Barnard. You will be a Barnard Bear and a Columbia Lion, and nothing will hold you back.
I’m a humanities major who loves space, and within my first few weeks at Barnard, I joined a Columbia aerospace engineering club. I get to spend time each week actively working with space, and I don’t think that would be true if it weren’t for Barnard and Columbia.
Akshaya Nataraj ’17 took full advantage of the Barnard and Columbia partnership. While studying statistics in the Columbia Department of Statistics, Akshaya taught herself coding languages so that she could better assist leading researchers in answering important medical questions. She also led Columbia’s Bhangra dance team, competings across the U.S. and making lifelong friends along the way.
