The Bard Center for Environmental Policy offers two master of science degrees in environmental policy and climate science and policy . We are guided by the belief that today’s young people are coming of age at an extraordinary moment in human history. By virtue of being born around 1990, their generation must shepherd humanity through this critical bottleneck: in which rapidly rising populations, all seeking a better way of life, are running up against critical resource limitations and profound environmental challenges—chief among these, the ever-thickening blanket of carbon dioxide that is quickly heating up the planet.
Bard’s focus is on leadership education, giving students the skills and ambition to transform businesses, NGO’s and governments, to rewire the world with clean energy, and to build a just and sustainable economy. Their first year curriculum is unique: an interdisciplinary mix of science, economics, policy and law. In the second year, their students participate in a 4-6 month internship, and return to Bard in the spring to complete their master’s thesis. Bard’s exceptional faculty-student ratio and small class size ensure close attention to the individual student’s career preparation and placement.
