Learn More About SPS Programs and the Application Process
If you are a prospective student interested in learning additional information about the Political Analytics program, we are eager to engage with you both during our interactive group sessions and individually.
We ask that you conduct thorough research on our programs by first attending one of our virtual or on-campus Political Analytics program events to ensure we have meaningful conversations. Program events enable you to interact with our admissions and program teams and learn more about program details and the Columbia SPS community. Please visit the Events section of any program’s website to learn about upcoming events, or search for upcoming events here.
We also ask that you attend one of our Application Tips sessions before requesting an individual appointment in order to best prepare you to engage thoughtfully with a member of our Admissions Team about the application process and application requirements. You can locate information session dates and times on our schedule of upcoming events.
We look forward to connecting with you individually once you have attended a Political Analytics program session and an Application Tips session.
You can also have your questions answered via email at politicalanalytics [[at]] sps [[dot]] columbia [[dot]] edu. If you are in New York City near campus and would like to speak with an available admissions counselor, walk-in hours are available Monday - Thursday from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. (15 minute meetings) for general inquiries. *Proof of vaccination and masks are required.*
If you are a current student or an admitted student starting next term, contact a member of our SPS Student Advising Team for information and guidance.
