Bard College Berlin

Bard College Berlin

Bard College Berlin offers interdisciplinary programs in the humanities and social sciences, with a strong focus on individual growth and the development of essential skills in writing and thinking. Students engage in an integrated inquiry into the intellectual and cultural history of the contemporary world before choosing to specialize in an area of the humanities or social sciences (economics, politics, art or literature). Study in the core program and the student’s chosen field of specialization is supplemented by a wide variety of elective courses in fields such as theater, film, philosophy and studio arts, and by many forms of engagement with the city of Berlin, including museum visits, special courses, and internships.
