Bard is redefining what it means to be a liberal arts institution
by expanding its mission beyond undergraduate education, to include secondary school and graduate programs. The curricula of all Bard programs are rooted in an allegiance to free speech, civility, dissent, and the traditions of scientific and speculative inquiry. Bard seeks to inspire disciplined skepticism and critical thinking.
