The Bard Center for Environmental Policy's graduate programs combine an intensive course of study with practical training in preparation for environmental careers in nonprofit organizations, government, and the private sector. The programs emphasize methods of critical inquiry and provides the practical knowledge necessary to understand the legal, political, socioeconomic, cultural, and ethical forces that influence the decision making process.
Whether you have already served, or are hoping to serve, consider earning your master's from Bard CEP in coordination with your Peace Corps experience. Consider the Master’s International Program or the Paul D. Coverdell Fellows Program
