Advising and Career Counseling

 

Advising

M.A. students receive advisement on their course of study, academic progress, and overall program requirements from the Program Director, Assistant Director, and Coordinator.

Career Counseling

In collaboration with the University career center – The Center for Career Education (CCE) – the M.A. program advises and supports students throughout the job and internship search process.

Students will meet with the Program Director to discuss their career goals and objectives. They may also meet with core faculty teaching in the M.A. program for further guidance.

In addition, the program offers one-on-one mock interviews and provides feedback on student resumes and cover letters.

Additional Resources

  • In order to fulfill the research paper requirement for the master’s degree, students will receive additional advising from faculty during the drafting process.
  • The Center for Career Education (CCE) maintains a tips and resources page complete with how-to guides on writing resumes/CVs and cover letters, interviewing, networking, and more.
  • The CCE Career Resources for International Students page addresses frequently asked questions regarding visa status and navigating the U.S. job search.
  • LionSHARE is an online job and internship database available exclusively to Columbia students and alumni. It includes opportunities to interview with employers on-campus, information on career fairs and other on-campus employer events, and a directory containing company overviews.

As a STEM-designated program, F-1 visa holders within the M.A. program are eligible to apply for the F-1 STEM OPT Extension.
