Program applicants must have received a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution in the liberal arts with a major (or equivalent) in the discipline they intend to study at Bard. All applications are evaluated one-at-a time by a small group of BardMAT faculty members. If you have any questions about your qualifications for admission, do not hesitate to email us to speak with an admission advisor. Students are accepted into the MAT Program on the basis of an assessment and the required materials.
All applications are evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Non-majors and non-traditional BA and BS applicants are encouraged to apply. Students who did not major in one of the five subject areas we offer are encouraged to send us a transcript for review prior to starting your application. Transcripts for review can be sent to our admission office via email and we will respond quickly.
