School of Professional Studies

The School of Professional Studies at Columbia University is a resource for those who wish to take their lives in new directions. Our students are motivated, serious, academically oriented people who seek professional, personal, or academic development in subjects that range from the sciences to the humanities to the arts. The scope of the School extends far beyond evening classes for returning students. Our programs serve not only non-degree and professional students, but also hundreds of graduate and undergraduate Columbia matriculates every year. The School’s diverse program offering is unified by its mission to transform knowledge and understanding in service of the greater good: a just, sustainable and compassionate global society.
