About Bard College

Bard College is a four-year residential college of the liberal arts and sciences with a 150-year history of academic excellence. From a 540-acre parklike campus in the Hudson River Valley, the College offers the bachelor of arts degree with concentrations in more than 40 academic programs in four divisions: Arts; Languages and Literature; Science, Mathematics, and Computing; and Social Studies. Bard also offers dual-degree options, including the program at the Bard College Conservatory of Music, in which students earn both a bachelor’s degree in music and a B.A. in another field. Among Bard's distinguished faculty are recipients of the Grammy Award, MacArthur Fellowship, National Science Foundation Grant, Guggenheim Fellowship, French Legion of Honor, Tony Award, and Pulitzer Prize.

Bard's Academic Programs

Over the past 30 years, Bard has broadened its scope beyond undergraduate academics. The College now operates five high school programs and eight graduate programs, and has expanded to encompass a network of regional, national, and global satellites. Bard has built such programs as the Bard Prison Initiative, which grants college degrees to New York State inmates, and the Bard High School Early Colleges, where students earn a high school diploma and an A.A. in four years. Bard’s philosophy sets a standard for both scholarly achievement and engagement in civic and global affairs on campus, while also taking the College's mission to the wider world.
