Upcoming Travel Study Trips

Update Regarding Travel Study Trips and Coronavirus (COV-19):

Columbia Alumni Association sponsored Travel Study Programs are currently on hiatus.

We are thrilled that you're thinking about your next adventure and hope everyone will save the dates to travel with alumni and friends . We are eager to help the alumni community to get out and explore together and look forward to the return of Alumni Travel programs as soon as we can.

The health and safety of our alumni travelers and their guests is of the utmost importance and we are evaluating each upcoming travel program accordingly. Listings below are all tentative. Brochures, rates and itineraries will be posted as soon as we are able to safely resume travel and trip details are finalized.

Please contact the Alumni Travel Study Program office at travelstudy@columbia.edu with any questions or for additional assistance with your upcoming Alumni Travel Study Program plans. 

The Alumni Travel Study Program will resume offering specially curated travel opportunities across the globe as soon as the University updates guidance allowing for the resumption of Alumni Travel. We look forward to helping you take epic adventures to destinations like Antarctica, river and ocean cruises, and small group experiential programs exploring local food, culture, and history.
