Course availability is subject to change. Also, some courses fill up quickly - it is recommended that you register early. In the Fall and Spring semesters, most classes begin at 5:10 or 7:20pm. Many but not all summer courses begin at approximately 4:40 and 6:55pm.
Scheduled offerings of selected required courses are listed here. Currently, HBSK 4072 is offered in Fall and Spring. Practicum classes are held once per year: HBSK 5373 (fall only); HBSK 5376 (spring only); HBSK 5377 (fall only). HBSK 5098 is offered in the Spring semester only as is HBSK 5580. Keep in mind that there are some required courses - HBSK 5098 and each practicum (HBSK 5373, 5376 and 5377) which have pre- or co-requisites. Refer to the "Courses" link for this information. Please note also that offerings for all required and elective courses listed in the Program Advisory Statement are not offered every semester. It is the student's responsibility to refer to the TC website www.tc.columbia.edu/tc-schedule for each term's course offerings and select appropriate courses. You may contact your program advisor with further questions after you have reviewed the TC class schedule each semester.
