Undergraduates are admitted directly to Columbia College, Barnard College, or the School of General Studies. Once admitted, you can declare your major  (or concentration) in Italian Literature or Italian Cultural Studies at any time. See "Undergraduate Programs," above, for more information on majors and concentrations that can be pursued through the Italian Department.

Applications for our graduate programs are generally due in early January for the PhD, and mid-April for the MA. See the "Graduate Programs" section, above, for further information about the programs we offer and how to apply.
