Join us on Monday evening, December 4, for a conversation with recent alumni of Bard Graduate Center’s MA program. They will discuss how they decided on the BGC MA, how the program helped prepare them for life after graduate school, and how their time here influenced their career paths. Light refreshments will be served.
