Linguistics 2020 - 2021

As announced by the President of Columbia University in April 2020, the 2020-2021 academic year will be comprised of three semesters: Fall 2020, Spring 2021, and Summer 2021. The Linguistics program will therefore offer courses in each of these terms.

This page provides an overview of our course offerings for all three terms, to help students as they plan for the academic year ahead. Please note that this schedule may be subject to change, and students are encouraged not only to revisit this page but also to confirm the course listings in the online Directory of Courses and Vergil.

In addition to our semester-long (14-week) course offerings, we will also offer 7-week immersive courses during the first half of the summer semester, Summer A. These courses will cover a semester’s worth of material in a shorter period of time and will meet for twice as many hours per week, allowing more contact between faculty and students and more sustained focus on the class content.

For questions, please contact Meredith Landman, Director of Undergraduate Studies,
