3+2 Program

This option allows Bard students to obtain their undergraduate liberal arts degree (B.A.) and the Levy M.S. degree in five years. Generally students are accepted into the 3+2 program in their junior year. Declaring a commitment by moderation allows advising and course selection to support a smooth transition.

Undergraduate Students

Students enrolled in Bard College who are majoring in economics or a related field (such as political science, finance, or math) must first meet all of their distribution requirements, have a successful moderation into a program of study, get approval from their undergraduate advisor, and submit a formal petition to the Dean of Studies. At the beginning of their fourth year at Bard, students enter the two-year Levy M.S. program. Interested students should inquire as soon as possible to ensure they meet all requirements.
* Bard 3+2 applicants MUST complete an application (log in with your Bard id).

Transfer Students

To be eligible, transfer students must have attended one year of classes at Bard’s Annandale campus. A major in economics, economics and finance, or other relevant field is strongly recommended. Upon completion of the College’s undergraduate requirements, a student may apply to the Levy M.S. program during their senior year.
