Throughout the academic year, Bard College welcomes visiting and exchange students from institutions within its international network as well as institutional exchange partners. Whether at Bard’s Annandale campus, Bard College Berlin, or BGIA in New York City; students take part in an immersive cultural program during their terms.
During the summer months, there are numerous science-based study opportunities for Bard network and exchange students at the undergraduate level. Students should contact the international education office at their home institutions regarding such opportunities at Bard College.
Spotlight on the Program in International Education
Bard’s Program in International Education (PIE) was launched in 1991, in the wake of tremendous political transformations abroad. Since its founding, PIE has brought more than 400 students, representing 37 countries, to Bard for a semester or year of study. Currently, PIE serves as an opportunity for students from across the Bard Network to spend a semester at the College’s Annandale campus, Bard College Berlin or BGIA in New York City. Other students with international scholarship resources may be eligible to join PIE.
Central European University (CEU) offers classes in collaboration with the Bard Globalization and International Affairs Program (BGIA) at Bard’s facility in New York City. CEU students benefit from internships organized in New York City as part of BGIA’s and CEU’s internship programs.
Economic inequality is a key concern in economics and public policy. The rise in inequality that occurred during the 1970s and early 1980s stimulated interest in the study of its causes and consequences. The subsequent surge in globalization throughout the 1990s and early 2000s created a situation in which economic growth and prosperity no longer dramatically reduced economic inequality. The persistence of inequalities within nations and across nations demands innovative policy responses. From the World Bank to the United Nations to governments throughout the world, a greater understanding of wealth distribution is a necessary skill in today’s policy landscape. To contribute to addressing this need, Central European University and Bard College’s Levy Economics Institute are pairing in a joint Advanced Certificate in Inequality Analysis that will take place at the Levy Institute and CEU’s extension site in Annandale-on-Hudson, New York.
Students in the Bard Summer Research Institute spend eight weeks in residence over the summer working on individual research projects in either the social or natural sciences. Each student has a faculty mentor for the duration of the program. IILE contributes scholarship funds when network students are invited to participate.
The incoming tuition exchange program serves as an opportunity for students from our tuition exchange partners to spend a semester at Bard College’s Annandale campus or at BGIA in New York City. Our partners include:
Students interested in this program should directly contact their home institution’s international education office.
