Student-Focused FacultyBard has been recognized as the #1 college in America for Classroom Experience by the Princeton Review, and you will not find an M.S. Policy program anywhere in the world in which students receive more one-on-one focus from distinguished faculty. Unlike in other graduate programs, our master's degree faculty do very little teaching of undergraduates, and they do not advise PhD candidates. They are fully dedicated to our students. Bard's class size is small, with a typical entering cohort of between 15 and 20. Our faculty are passionate teachers, active researchers and practitioners, and active mentors, who work closely with students while they are at Bard and continue to support our alumni after they graduate.
