Columbia University is a member of the Inter-University Doctoral Consortium in Medieval and Renaissance Studies, an association of universities in the New York metropolitan area whose members also include The City University of New York Graduate CenterFordham UniversityThe New School for Social Research, New York UniversityRutgers University, and Princeton University.

As a member of the Doctoral Consortium, Columbia University can provide fully matriculated doctoral-level students the opportunity to take courses that may not otherwise be available to them at Columbia. Cross-registration is not open to students at the master’s level. With the approval of the associate dean of the Graduate School of Arts and Science at Columbia, the student’s program advisor, the dean’s office of the host institution, and the course instructor, a Columbia student may register for courses at any of the above member institutions. Access to such courses is provided on a “space-available” basis, assuming the course instructor’s approval.

A list of available Consortium courses for each member institution can be accessed by clicking the links below:

It is important that interested students contact not only the instructors, but their own advising departments in order to complete the registration procedures for Consortium courses. Information on Consortium registration policies can be found here.
