|About||Bard College brings together extraordinary faculty and students from around the globe, offering a rigorous undergraduate curriculum in the liberal arts and sciences, with an international network of affiliated programs.|
Bard College is a four-year residential college of the liberal arts and sciences with a 150-year history of academic excellence. Located on a 540-acre parklike campus in the Hudson River Valley, the College offers the bachelor of arts degree with concentrations in nearly 50 academic programs in four divisions—Arts; Languages and Literature; Science, Mathematics, and Computing; and Social Studies—and Interdivisional Programs and Concentrations. Bard also offers several dual degrees, including a B.A./B.S. in economics and finance, and at the Bard College Conservatory of Music, where undergraduates earn a bachelor’s degree in music and a B.A. in another field in the liberal arts or sciences.
Over the past 35 years, Bard has broadened its scope beyond undergraduate academics. The College now operates nine graduate programs and has expanded to encompass a network of regional, national, and global partnerships—including dual-degree programs in four international locations; the Bard Prison Initiative, which grants college degrees to New York State inmates; and the Bard High School Early Colleges, where students earn a high school diploma and an A.A. in four years. Bard’s philosophy sets a standard for both scholarly achievement and engagement in civic and global affairs on campus, while also taking the College’s mission to the wider world. The undergraduate college has an enrollment of more than 1,900 and a student-to-faculty ratio of 10:1.
|Awards||Among Bard’s distinguished faculty are winners of MacArthur fellowships, National Science Foundation grants, Guggenheim fellowships, Grammy Awards, French Legion of Honor awards, Tony Awards, and Pulitzer Prizes.|
