Living Environment Teacher at The Academy for Software Engineering, New York City
"The opportunity to combine graduate study—master of science in environmental policy and master of arts in teaching—has uniquely prepared me for a career in science education. Bard CEP’s rigorous course work has provided me with a breadth and depth of knowledge and the tools to critically analyze environment problems. These skills enable me to teach not only high school biology in New York City, but also to develop my own environmental courses to share these skills with my students."

The Bard CEP dual-degree programs combine Bard’s innovative graduate curriculum with leading programs in environmental law, teaching, or business. Applicants must apply to, and be accepted by, both the CEP and the complimentary Programs.
Master of Science and Juris Doctor with Pace Law School (M.S./J.D.)
This program combines Bard’s innovative graduate curriculum with one of the nation’s top environmental law programs. The M.S./J.D. dual-degree program allows students to complete, in an accelerated period, a master of science degree in either environmental policy or climate science and policy at Bard College and a doctorate in jurisprudence with a certificate in environmental law at Pace University.
Bard CEP offers a dual degree with Bard’s Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) Program for motivated students seeking both advanced knowledge in environmental policy and professional certification in secondary education. Dual degree students can pursue a two-year or three-year option to earn an M.S. in either environmental policy or climate science and policy, and teacher training in literature, math, biology, or history.
Master of Science and Master of Business Administration in Sustainability
The dual degree offered through Bard CEP and Bard MBA is a three year program designed for students developing careers at the intersection of policy and business. Students come away with master's-level training in environmental policy or climate science and policy, and a business degree focused on sustainability and social justice. This dual-degree program is truly innovative in its focus and design.
