Fall 2023 Courses

Undergraduate Courses
Graduate Courses

All Columbia seminars with an "AHIS" prefix require an application, linked beneath each respective seminar course description.

Many courses fall into more than one distribution area. However, a single course may not be used to fulfill more than one field requirement. For example, the course AHIS GU4155 The Art and Archaeology of Ancient Mesopotamia can fulfill either the 'Ancient' time period requirement or 'Middle East' regional requirement, but not both.

4000-level lectures are "introductory graduate courses" and are open to advanced undergraduate and all graduate students, as well as a limited amount of registered auditors from the School of Professional Studies, if the instructor permits.

6000-level lectures are open only to graduate students. Instructor permission is not required for graduate level lectures. 8000-level courses are graduate seminars for enrolled graduate students. Graduate students in the Department of Art History and Archaeology receive preference for enrollment and auditors are generally not permitted.
