Double Degree Program Application Requirements

Students interested in obtaining a second bachelor of arts degree from the Albert A. List College of Jewish Studies (the undergraduate division of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America) through the Barnard-JTS double degree program must file a separate application with JTS. Students interested in financial aid must follow financial aid application requirements for both Barnard and JTS. JTS also offers the opportunity for currently enrolled students to enroll in individual courses with the permission of the Chair of their academic department and the Dean of Studies Office. Review the JTSA website for more information on the List College/Columbia/Barnard Double Degree program.

If you have questions, please contact Ann Dachs, senior admissions officer, at or 212/854-2014.

Please note: As candidates applying Early Decision to the Double Degree program will only be able to submit one application as Early Decision, students are asked to submit their application to JTS as Early Decision and their application to Barnard College as Regular Decision. Both must be submitted by the November 1st deadline. Additionally, it is important for applicants to select the Double Degree Program option under Special Programs in the Academics section of the Common Application for Barnard College. The Offices of Admissions at the Jewish Theological Seminary and at Barnard College will ensure that each application is reviewed as Early Decision for the program.
