Bard CEP is looking for motivated students who are ready to embark on an exciting educational journey through their pioneering master’s degree programs in environmental policy and climate policy. The deadline for admission is March 15, 2011.
Students come from a variety of academic disciplines, and yet they all bring to Bard a passion about their future role as environmental leaders. Interdisciplinary course work, faculty-student mentorships, and professional internship experiences provide the platform students need to develop academically and professionally. The goal of Bard CEP’s graduate training is to provide the knowledge and tools necessary to create leaders who have the ambition and courage to change the future.
