Course lists 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 Director of the MA Progam. 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).
Current term course lists include Residence Unit information.  All students registering for classes must enroll in a Residence Unit (one unit, one half unit, or one quarter unit).  If the requirement of two residence units has been met, students may enroll in an Extended Residence unit.  International students must register for one Resident Unit per term while they are in the US and enrolled in courses.
