The Bard Center for Environmental Policy is committed to providing career support to its alumni/ae and students. Career services at Bard CEP are tailored to students' individual career preferences and plans. Faculty help students craft their professional resumes and prepare them for interviews; an online job board facilitates searches; and career-specific symposia and panels are held throughout the year. Our active alumni provide invaluable information on potential opportunities and contacts. As a result of this support, many Bard CEP students find themselves already employed prior to graduation.
Students talk about their internship experiences as part of the Bard CEP master's program.

Senior Manager of Research and Analysis, California Center for Sustainable Energy
"As the senior manager of research and analysis at the California Center for Sustainable Energy (CCSE), I oversee research designed to support effective renewable energy, electric vehicle, and energy efficiency policies and programs. The multidisciplinary, thematic curriculum offered at Bard CEP was invaluable in preparing me for this work. It provided me with the tools necessary to both understand and explain the technical and policy issues driving sustainable energy markets in California."
