For Current Students

Current term courses for MA students

Each semester a list of classes that can be taken for credit toward the degree will be announced. The status date of the list will be recorded, and new courses will be added to the list as details become available for registration. The selection of your schedule in a given term needs to be approved by the MA Coordinator. A complete list of South Asia classes, including undergraduate area studies and language classes, will be posted on the South Asia Institute site (see links below). Students may want to consult the Directory of Classes from the main Columbia website as well (see link below).
