AY 2020-2021 | 3-SEMESTER CURRICULUM

Abstract

This page provides an overview of our course offerings for all three terms to help students as they make decisions and plans for the academic year ahead. Please note that this schedule may be subject to change, and students are encouraged not only to revisit this page but also to confirm the course listings in the online Directory of Classes, where course descriptions and class meeting times are posted.

As announced by the President of Columbia University in April 2020, the 2020-2021 academic year will comprise three semesters:  Fall 2020, Spring 2021, and Summer 2021. The Department of Latin American and Iberian Cultures will therefore offer online and hybrid courses in each of these terms.

This page provides an overview of our course offerings for all three terms to help students as they make decisions and plans for the academic year ahead. Please note that this schedule may be subject to change, and students are encouraged not only to revisit this page but also to confirm the course listings in the online Directory of Classes, where course descriptions, class meeting times, and modalities of instruction are posted.

In addition to semester-long (14-week) course offerings, the Department of Latin American and Iberian Cultures will also offer a few 7-week “immersive courses.” These courses will cover a semester’s worth of material in a shorter period of time and will meet for twice as many hours per week, allowing more contact between faculty and students and more sustained focus on the class content. They will be offered in the first half of a semester (e.g., Fall Subterm A).
