A private college for the public good, Bard College seeks to inspire curiosity, a love of learning, idealism, and a commitment to the link between higher education and civic participation. From our first-year components—Language and Thinking, Citizen Science, and First-Year Seminar—to the Senior Project, Bard's unique curriculum combines rigor and flexibility. Students take ownership of their education while immersing themselves in dynamic programs of study and engaging with their peers and the community at large. Working in small classes and collaborating with a world-class faculty, Bard students are active participants and leaders in their educational and co-curricular experiences. Connected both to New York City and to a global network of programs, including the chance to Begin in Berlin, the College enables students to engage the world from state-of-the-art facilities on our stunning 1,000-acre Hudson River Valley campus.
