Students take liberal arts coursework representative of the four academic divisions of the college—The Arts; Languages and Literature; Social Studies; and Science, Mathematics, and Computing.
The Bard Microcolleges are an effort of the Bard Prison Initiative. For more information, visit bpi.bard.edu.
