Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, New York

Bard College is a private, coeducational liberal arts institution in Annandale-on-Hudson, New York, 145 km (90 mi) north of New York City.

The college was originally founded in 1860 under the name St. Stephen's, in association with the Episcopal church of New York City, and changed its name to Bard in 1934 in honor of its founder, John Bard.

The college confers bachelor's and master's degrees in a wide range of fields. It offers courses leading to the bachelor of arts degree in four academic divisions: arts, languages and literature, natural sciences and mathematics, and social studies. A required curriculum of arts and sciences courses, known as the Common Curriculum, is generally completed in the first two years, after which the students concentrate on their chosen major. Seniors must complete a thesis project. The college also operates a tutorial system that allows students to work individually with their professors. Joint degrees in business administration, engineering, forestry, and public administration are offered in cooperation with other colleges and universities, including Columbia University in New York City; Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri; Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire; Duke University in Durham, North Carolina; and Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut.

Master's degrees are offered through the Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts; the Graduate School of Environmental Studies; the Center for Curatorial Studies; and the Graduate School for the Study of Decorative Arts in New York City.

Research facilities at the college include the Archaeology Field School, the Center for Curatorial Studies, the Jerome Levy Economics Institute, and the Community, Regional, and Environmental Studies Center.
