Columbia University underscores the singular importance of the study of foreign language and culture as a vital compenent of a student’s education. All students, whether undergraduates, graduates, or students enrolled in professional programs, can benefit from incorporating language learning into their broader educational experiences. The university encourages and supports students in this endeavor by providing them with an extraordinary range of language study opportunities – including for some languages not available at any other institution in the United States – offered through its language departments, its Language Resource Center, as well as through agreements with consortial partners such as Cornell, Yale, and New York Universities.
