Classes at Columbia

<p>I plan on majoring in economics, which I understand to be a popular major. I was looking through the columbia course catalog online and most of the classes aren't capped until around 90 students. Are classes at usually large, lecture-style classes past the introductory level?</p>

<p>If you're talking strictly economics then, in short, the answer is yes. Principles of Economics, Macro, and Micro are all fairly large lectures.</p>

<p>I think you'll ultimately find the size of these classes works in your favor. Columbia has some pretty legendary economics professors - many of them are well sought after. Getting capped OUT of these classes is usually a bigger concern. Also, said professors have a penchant for making even very big lectures seem small.</p>
