The School offers more than 2,000 courses and awards students many different academic degrees in various fields of study.

In 2002, the School opened a new site at the historic Woolworth Building, renting over 94,000 square feet (8,700 m2) of space in the 90-year-old landmark skyscraper, largely devoted to its Center for Global Affairs. The School is currently developing a new building for most of its departments, to open in 2011.
