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 540-acre Hudson River Valley campus
