The MA in Climate and Society will be the inaugural education program of the new Columbia Climate School. Students who matriculate in Fall 2021 will be students of the Climate School. The School will provide the scholarship needed to tackle climate change and its related challenges. It will offer solutions through transdisciplinary research, partnerships, education, innovative technologies, and the sharing of ideas.
The Climate School will serve as an integrated hub of climate activity at the University to connect, amplify, and advance new areas of inquiry and research in the field of climate at Columbia. The School will encompass the Earth Institute's research center and programs, build on Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory's decades of earth science analysis, and involve schools and departments from across the University.
