From the School

Barnard College is an independent college of liberal arts and sciences for women, partnered with Columbia University, located in New York City.

Founded in 1889, Barnard College was among the first colleges to offer women the chance to earn a degree of this kind. Today, Barnard College remains committed to the education of 2,500 women from more than 50 countries and nearly 50 states. Partnered with Columbia University since 1900, under an agreement unique in the world of higher education, Barnard is an independent college for women, maintaining its own Board of Trustees, campus, curriculum, faculty and admissions process. Barnard also operates from its own endowment, while Columbia University confers degrees to Barnard students upon graduation. The fully residential campus features countless, independent resources and modern facilities Students at Barnard also have academic and co-curricular access to resources available on the Columbia campus across the street, including cross-registration for courses. Barnard students benefit from both an all women and a coeducational experience. Additionally, Barnard women complete alongside Columbia students on 16 NCAA Division I athletic teams as part of the Ivy League conference. The small, personal, and close-knit character of Barnard is augmented by the resources of a large research university nestled in one of the most dynamic and diverse cities in the world.


From The School

Transcripts, recommendations, test scores, writing, attributes and achievements all play a role in Barnard's highly selective and holistic admissions process.

Academic Programs

A Barnard education seeks to provide women with the tools and techniques necessary to think critically and act effectively in the world today. Barnard requires students to complete 122 points of course work (including First-Year Writing, First-Year Seminar, and one semester of physical education) in addition to other general requirements and a major for the Bachelor of Arts (AB) degree. Barnard believes that a successful liberal arts education revolves around building a strong foundation with both breadth and depth. The newly-designed Foundations curriculum will include Distribution Requirements in the Arts/Humanities, Social Sciences, Sciences and Foreign Language in addition to six Modes of Thinking which will include one course each in Thinking Quantitatively and Empirically, Thinking Technologically and Digitally, Thinking through Global Inquiry, Thinking Locally-New York City, Thinking about Social Difference, and Thinking with Historical Perspective. Each student shapes her own academic program by electing a combination of wide-ranging introductory courses and more specialized upper level courses.

The College has a long-standing commitment to prepare students sufficiently in a subject so that they may undertake a semesteror year-long thesis or project, usually during the senior year, on a topic related to their major. Students are encouraged to explore internships in their field, thereby acquiring information and experience that complement what is learned through formal study. A student may major in two fields by satisfying all the major requirements prescribed by each department.

Majors and Degrees Offered

Barnard offers the bachelor of arts (AB) degree, and students choose from more than 50 majors and programs of study, including Africana studies, American studies, ancient studies, anthropology, architecture, art history (including visual arts), Asian and Middle Eastern cultures, biochemistry, biological studies, chemistry, classics, comparative literature, computer science, dance, economics, education, English (including creative writing), environmental science and policy, European studies, film studies, French, German, history, human rights studies, Italian, Jewish studies, mathematics, Medieval and Renaissance studies, music, neuroscience and behavior, philosophy, physics and astronomy, political science (including international politics), psychology, religion, Slavic studies, sociology, Spanish and Latin American cultures, statistics, theatre, urban studies, and women's, sexuality and gender studies. With this foundation in the liberal arts and sciences, Barnard women succeed in a variety of career fields, including business, communications, health and public service, and are well prepared for global and diverse settings.

Students Say

Barnard is a small school, an urban school, a resource-rich school, a school that “offers so many opportunities.” In some ways, Barnard College combines all the desirable traits one would want from an all-women’s liberal arts college. Located in New York City, here “you get the best of both worlds,” both a “small academic setting” as well as having “full access to the Ivy League institution (Columbia University) right across the street.” The school’s size means it “provides a small, close community” where students will “see familiar faces often.” Among those familiar faces are the professors themselves, who are “really engaging and make the material approachable and interesting.” Classes are a mix between lectures and discussions, and even in the larger classes professors “definitely make time for students to come talk to them.” Students say educators here are adept at “creating an environment to learn from and be inspired by classmates through the discussions held.” The “phenomenal” education experience at Barnard may be “challenging and very stressful” at times, but students are “so grateful” for those challenges. And while the school itself may be small, “you can cross Broadway and feel that large, Ivy League University feel.” Graduates from Barnard should expect to experience a “transition from a young female college student to an adjusted global citizen.”

Students Say

Barnard’s Career Development department strives to “support women in cultivating a career of their own invention that connects a liberal arts education, leadership and work-life planning,” according to the school’s website. In addition to career fairs held every semester, Barnard also offers the Senior Initiative Program, which the school says “provides graduating seniors with the tools to navigate today’s job market in order to prepare for life post-Barnard.” Likewise, free Leadership Lab workshops, put on by the Athena Center for Leadership Studies, and the three-year Athena Scholars Program engage students to develop their leadership potential. Students note that “internships in finance and publishing are popular” and praise the “strong alumnae network.” According to, 58 percent of Barnard graduates report that their jobs are of high social value.

Colleges that Create Futures


From The School

Tuition, Room, Board and Fees

Tuition and fees for 2015-16 are $47,631. Room and board is an additional $15,110.

Financial Aid

Financial aid at Barnard is strictly need-based. A student's need is determined using criteria established by both the federal government and Barnard's institutional analysis. Financial aid awarded by Barnard supplements a family's own financial resources, while Barnard meets 100 percent of the remaining demonstrated need. Financial aid awards typically consist of grants, work study jobs or Barnard student employment, and student loans. Students who are awarded Barnard College grants should expect grants throughout their four years at Barnard, providing the students' families maintain their level of need and the students maintain their academic standing. 54% of first-year students received some form of financial aid during the 2015-2016 school year and the average total grant (including state and federal funds) was $44,974. The average loan indebtedness of Barnard's most recent graduates (Class of 2015) is $16,344. Need plays no role in the Barnard admissions process for US citizens and permanent residents; admission for these first-year students is need-blind, and admissibility is evaluated solely on merit. For international citizens and transfer students, Barnard is need aware in the admissions evaluation.

Bottom Line

An education as valuable as one from Barnard College does not come without its costs; yearly tuition is $44,300. With fees and room and board totaling $16,300 (not to mention books, supplies, and other personal expenses), students are making a substantial investment. Freshmen, as well as upperclassmen, are pleased to find need-based scholarships and grants being provided to more than 95 percent of the student population. Also, 50 percent of all students benefit from some form of financial aid. Just under half of enrollees do need to borrow to pay for school, and they can expect an average indebtedness upon graduating from Barnard of about $18,000— extremely reasonable given the cost of attending the college.

Bang For Your Buck

The value of the school is in the people, the location, and the satisfaction found throughout the years by successful Barnard graduates. One recent graduate tells us, “The school has a strong faculty, outstanding students, fabulous career-development services, a great alumnae network, and an important mission.” Barnard College practices need-blind admissions for U.S. citizens and permanent residents, which means that admissions officers are unaware of a student’s financial circumstances when evaluating an application or debating an application in committee. Financial need is not considered when considering the qualifications of potential Barnard students. Once accepted, undergraduates have access to many financial-assistance options; also included are study-abroad opportunities for qualified students.

Students Say

Finding a single trait to define a school full of “cool, creative, confident, well-spoken, and determined” women who are “aware that [they are] in the cosmopolitan NYC” may seem difficult, but the repeated refrain of students makes it clear that there is something that unites Barnard students: They are ambitious. These are “driven, intelligent” women who are “extremely interested, dedicated, and passionate about something.” What that something may be varies— “biology, dance, theatre, architecture, economics, or international relations” and more—but the “strong, powerful, intelligent personalities” make them who they are. These “motivated individuals” sometimes “have a tendency to overload,” but “all Barnard women are very proactive and use all resources available…to achieve their goals.” That said, while students here are “ambitious, driven, and hard workers,” it is “not at the cost of physical or mental health: they know how to have fun, too.” Barnard women tend to be well-dressed and embrace the cosmopolitan side of New York City. One student comments, “I know of very few students here who feel they don’t fit in or haven’t found their niche,” and maybe that is because a Barnard student is one who is “smart, independent, and ready to take on the world.”


From The School


Barnard is located in New York City and offers students endless cultural, academic, and professional opportunities. New York is an extension of Barnard's classrooms and students make use of its resources for both study and exploration. Barnard’s Office of Career Development lists over 2,500 internships throughout New York City each year and classes often incorporate visits to museums, tours of historic neighborhoods, or participation in civic engagement projects. Barnard's location in Morningside Heights offers a retreat from the fast pace of Mid-town Manhattan and is often referred to as an educational Mecca with students, staff and faculty from a number of institutions of higher education all calling the Heights "home." Institutions neighboring the campus, in addition to Columbia, include the Manhattan School of Music, Teachers College, Bank Street College of Education, Union Theological Seminary, and the Jewish Theological Seminary. New York City is the ultimate college town, drawing more than 500,000 college students each year.

Campus Facilities & Equipment

Barnard's Campus covers four-and-a-half acres of prime New York real estate stretching from 116th to 120th Street along Broadway with 15 buildings comprising Barnard’s cozy campus. Milbank Hall, a nationally registered historic landmark, contains offices, classrooms, a cutting-edge greenhouse, and the Minor Latham Playhouse. 14-story Altschul Hall houses modern science research facilities and equipment, along with classrooms, offices, and laboratories. Barnard Hall, facing the main entrance is the home of the Barnard Center for Research on Women. Brooks, Reid, and Sulzberger Halls along with Hewitt, make up the Quad, the residence life complex serving first-years situated at the southern end of campus. Campus housing is guaranteed to continuously enrolled first-years for four years. The heart of student life is the Diana Center, Barnard's student center, where students have access to many amenities augmenting academic life, including an art gallery, black box theatre, event and dining spaces, art and architecture studios, music practice rooms, and more. Finally, Barnard students have access to Columbia's libraries, with more than 12 million volumes, over 100,000 current journals and serials, and an extensive collection of electronic resources, manuscripts, rare books, microforms, and other non-print formats, provides access to one of the top five academic library systems in North America.

Off-Campus Opportunities

There are numerous opportunities for Barnard students to explore academic interests beyond the Barnard gates. Barnard students have full access to Columbia resources including more than 30 libraries and collections, research facilities and graduate programs, and courses which complement the Barnard curriculum.

Opportunities for double and joint degrees are also available with other schools within Columbia. One option is the five-year AB/MIA or AB/MPA program where Barnard students also earn their masters from Columbia's School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA). Barnard may also nominate juniors with outstanding records for early admission to Columbia Law School under the Accelerated Program in Interdisciplinary Legal Education (AILE) Program and may recommend candidates for an accelerated degree with Columbia's School of Oral and Dental Surgery. Students interested in both the liberal arts and engineering may earn the AB/BS degrees in a five-year (3-2) program with Columbia's School of Engineering and Applied Science. Highly talented musicians can apply for a selective Lesson Exchange Program with the Juilliard School or Cross Registration with the Manhattan School of Music. Advanced Juilliard exchange students can then apply and audition for the Juilliard School's five-year (3-2) program, earning their AB from Barnard and the MM degree from Julliard. Finally, students may earn an AB from Barnard and a BA from the nearby Jewish Theological Seminary's List College, if admitted to the Double Degree Program.

Barnard students also explore academics beyond both New York and the United States through over 150 study-abroad programs in more than 50 countries including, but not limited to: Argentina, Australia, China, Costa Rica, Czech Republic, Egypt, France, Greece, Ireland, Israel, Kenya, Panama, Peru, Russia, Scotland, and Tibet. Programs focus on cultural immersion, advanced or independent study, and field-based or experiential learning and may include a single semester or a full year of study. Students enroll in a variety of programs offered through other universities, liberal arts college consortiums and international organizations. Atlanta's Spelman College and Washington, D.C.'s Howard University offer domestic exchange programs with Barnard. Additionally, Barnard has a Visiting International Students Program where 70-90 students from 15-20 partner schools around the world come to Barnard in the spring.

Students Say

Finding things to do at Barnard? “It’s easy—we live in New York.” When you live in “one of the greatest cities on Earth,” you are “open to a wide range of things to do such as shows, film festivals, amazing restaurants, etc.” As one student puts it, while there is a thriving party scene on campus, “put down your vodka and go to the Met.” Students even enjoy free admission to many such attractions. But while the opportunities for entertainment and cultural activities are limitless in a city like New York—the museums, sports venues, book stores, music venues, cultural centers and more are too numerous to list— “a lot of fun events take place on campus.” There are a number of clubs on campus, busy students often spend time “just chilling” because “everyone is working or going to office hours, or pursuing an internship, a personal job, etc.,” and neighboring Columbia offers a “phenomenal Greek life” for those interested in that scene. No matter their chosen form of distraction from school work and extracurriculars, students here “are intensely dedicated to pursuing their interests, whether that be artistic, academic, pre-professional, or athletic ones.”
