Bard College Programs
Bard's 3+2 and 4+1 programs are designed to offer Bard undergraduates a path to a master's degree. Generally, qualified students are accepted into a 3+2 program in their junior year. Declaring commitment at moderation allows advising and course selection to support a smooth transition to the two-year master’s program. By selecting a 4+1 pathway, students combine the benefit of a four-year undergraduate experience with one-year master's program.
