The Bard Globalization and International Affairs program (BGIA) held a graduation ceremony for the summer 2017 cohort on July 28, 2017. Twenty-three students spent an active and successful summer in New York City interning, taking classes, and participating in BGIA cultural activities. Classes offered this summer included Global Cities—New York at the Center of the World, Counterterrorism, and Gender in International Relations.
 
This summer’s students hailed from a wide variety of schools, including Bard, Barnard, Bryn Mawr, Connecticut College, Deakin University (Australia), Emory, Goucher, Lafayette, Morehouse, Mount Holyoke, Oberlin, Trinity, University of North Carolina, Ursinus, and Wofford. They interned all over New York City, at Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs, Charney Research, Control Risks, Foreign Policy Interrupted, Global Kids, International Institute of Rural Reconstruction, MADRE, Magnum Foundation, Oxford Analytica, Partners for Progressive Israel, PEN America, Watchlist on Children and Armed Conflict, World Policy Institute, Abigail Pesta, World Policy Journal, and the Zain Verjee Group.
 
BGIA provides an opportunity for undergraduate students and recent graduates to take advanced courses in international affairs while working at carefully selected internships based on individual interests—all while experiencing life in New York City. More information is available at: bgia.bard.edu.
