Spotlight on the Bard Summer Science Intensive
BSSI is a four-week intensive course for students from the Faculty of Liberal Arts and Sciences of St. Petersburg University (Smolny), in St. Petersburg, Russia. Participants explore an environmental topic from a scientific perspective in tandem with English instruction to support language development within the interdisciplinary theme. The program uses the Hudson Valley as a living classroom, in which students learn about ecology, water resource management, and the environmental movement in the United States.
