All classes for the remainder of the semester will be conducted virtually, and faculty and staff are working remotely until further notice. Given widespread community transmission of COVID-19 in New York City, everyone must observe crucial measures to prevent the virus from spreading further.
Drawing on the resources of Columbia University, SIPA offers a number of dual degree programs with other Columbia schools. Students in these programs gain knowledge, skills, and perspectives in fields other than International and Public Affairs. Each dual degree program leads to the award of two degrees in less time than if the two degrees were pursued separately.
The international dual degree at SIPA, under the auspices of the Global Public Policy Network (GPPN): Provides students the opportunity to pursue two degrees, at two different Universities on two continents in two years, giving students the opportunity for a truly global perspective.
I applied to SIPA because it has the best program to understand urban challenges while acquiring the management skills crucial to working in this field.
