Bard-Rockefeller Program

Since 2000, Bard College and The Rockefeller University in New York City have collaborated on a program in science education. Rockefeller faculty offer courses to Bard students on subjects at the intersection of biology and medicine, and reserve places for them in the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship Program, which allows college students to work in Rockefeller research laboratories. Bard faculty may obtain adjunct status at Rockefeller, which enables them to participate in research projects in the university’s laboratories. The Bard-Rockefeller Semester in Science began in the spring of 2007. A companion program to BGIA, it centers on competitive internships in Rockefeller research laboratories.
