About Bard College

Year Founded: 1860

Since 1860, Bard College has combined a firm commitment to a Liberal Arts and Sciences education with a readiness to innovate. The approach has enhanced the undergraduate experience with compatible intellectual and artistic ventures at our Hudson Valley campus and at affiliated institutions around the world. We seek to provide a challenging academic program, a supportive environment that fosters a collaborative exchange of ideas inside and outside the classroom, and access to world-class scholarship and research.
