Discover Bard College
Bard College's curriculum is uniquely designed and structured to help students engage their passions through their formal academic program and beyond.From our first-year components—Language and Thinking, Citizen Science, and First-Year Seminar—to the Senior Project, Bard's curriculum combines rigor and flexibility. Students take control of their education while immersing themselves in dynamic programs of study and engaging with their peers and the community at large. Working in small classes with an outstanding faculty, Bard students thrive. Connected both to New York City and to a global network of programs, including the chance to Begin in Berlin, the College enables students to engage the world from state-of-the-art facilities on our stunning 1,000-acre Hudson River Valley campus.
Life After BardBardians know that the College is a unique place that values not only the individual but also the world beyond the Annandale campus—that’s why we find alumni/ae making their mark in business, science, politics, the environment, and the arts. Alums take great pride in their alma mater and support Bard in any way they can, whether by recommending new students, making a gift to the College, or offering professional mentoring to current students and young alums. There are lots of ways to stay connected to Bard after graduation:
