Columbia has launched a new spring semester study abroad program in Istanbul, building upon existing relationships with Boğaziçi University and the Columbia Global Center in Turkey. The program is anchored by two seminars, taught by Columbia Professors Martha Howell and Karen Van Dyck, that address the question of how, from the Middle Ages to the present, westerners have interpreted and incorporated features of Greek culture in Istanbul.
Come learn more about studying abroad in Kyoto! Students on the program Take advanced coursework in Japanese language at the 3rd, 4th & 5th year levels plus courses in Japanese studies.
