A Whole That’s Greater Than the Sum of Its Parts
Students from Barnard and Columbia share course catalogs and can take classes at either campus. From dance to differential math and architecture to philosophy, you’ll have the advantages of a flexible liberal arts curriculum that grows with you and that you can shape to meet your evolving interests.
Barnard students can also opt to pursue a joint degree program in coordination with Columbia's School of International and Public Affairs and the School of Engineering and Applied Science.
Barnard and Columbia partner on several 4+1 Pathways that let you earn a Barnard bachelor’s degree and a Columbia master’s degree in just five years. One of the newest is in engineering and applied sciences.
Barnard Professors Are Columbia Professors, Too
All tenured Barnard professors are also tenured at Columbia University, where they’re free to pursue their academic interests with full access to the world-class resources of a large research university. This means you study with the best teacher-scholars in the country.
