Career Development OfficeThe mission of the Bard College Career Development Office (CDO) is to help students find a professional purpose, along with offering a clear understanding of jobs in the 21st century. We ask students who they are and what matters to them, and then we partner with them to translate a liberal arts education into meaningful internships and work experience. We encourage students to schedule appointments, attend our programs, and contact the office for career advice.
Health and CounselingCare at the Bard College Student Health Service is based on a holistic approach to treating students. Its goal is to promote optimum physical, emotional, intellectual, and social well-being of the Bard community through education and preventative and primary care.
The College's Counseling Service provides individual, couples, and group counseling as well as assessment, consultation, referral, and campus outreach services to the Bard community. All services are free of charge and available to currently enrolled students.
International Student Services
The International Student Services Office provides technical assistance and advice to international students. Its prime responsibilities are to keep the College and students in compliance with the applicable immigration regulations and to help these students gain and maintain their F-1 status, as well as to assist with any administrative issues relating to employment, taxation, and the like. In conjunction with these formal obligations, the office provides informal advice on matters of cultural, social, and personal concern, and supports the activities of the International Student Organization.
