The BRSS academic program is centered on an intensive laboratory experience, but also features science and non-science courses. Students must take at least 12 credits, but may take as many as 16, constituted as follows:
Advanced topics course (4 credits) A course on an advanced topic in biology will be offered by one, or a team of, Rockefeller post-docs. The course will meet twice a week and the subject matter to be covered will be determined by the post-docs. This course is mandatory.
Courses from Bard Globalization and International Affairs Program (4 - 8 credits) BRSS students will be eligible to take courses offered as a part of the Bard Globalization and International Affairs Program. In order to ensure that there is overlap, BGIA will commit to offering a regular course at the nexus of international affairs and the sciences, with particular reference to global issues and public health.
