Academics at Bard

Bard is redefining what it means to be a liberal arts institution by expanding its mission beyond undergraduate education, to include secondary school and graduate programs. The curricula of all Bard programs are rooted in an allegiance to free speech, civility, dissent, and the traditions of scientific and speculative inquiry. Bard seeks to inspire disciplined skepticism and critical thinking.

A Unique Educational Experience

A hallmark of the educational experience at Bard is the intensive interaction between students and faculty through small seminars, tutorials, and independent project work. The Bard MBA Program in Sustainability builds on the College's tradition of innovative curricula with added emphasis on professional preparation and career development in environmental policy fields.
