The Harriman Institute sponsors a Certificate Program that students pursue in conjunction with graduate-degree programs in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, the School of International and Public Affairs, the School of Law, the Journalism School, the Business School, the School of Public Health, or other professional schools at Columbia University. Enrollment in the Institute’s Certificate Program is contingent upon the candidate’s acceptance into a graduate-degree program in the University.
Certificates are awarded three times a year: October, February, and May.
Students are highly encouraged to submit the Harriman Certificate Statement of Intent as early as possible in order to declare their intent to pursue the Certificate. The Statement of Intent is non-binding, but must be submitted in order for students to be eligible for Harriman Institute fellowships.
