Get the list of column headers or column name in python pandas

In this tutorial we will learn how to get the list of column headers or column name in python pandas using list() function.  Lets see with an example

Create Dataframe:

import pandas as pd
import numpy as np

#Create a DataFrame
d = {
    'Name':['Alisa','Bobby','jodha','jack','raghu','Cathrine',
            'Alisa','Bobby','kumar','Alisa','Alex','Cathrine'],
    'Age':[26,24,23,22,23,24,26,24,22,23,24,24],
     
       'Score':[85,63,55,74,31,77,85,63,42,62,89,77]}

df = pd.DataFrame(d,columns=['Name','Age','Score'])
df

so the output will be

Get the list of column headers or column name:
