Each fall, Bard Graduate Center hosts a number of open houses for prospective students. These events are led by our faculty members, who talk in depth about their research interests and teaching. This is one of the best ways for students to learn more about BGC. Because not everyone can make it to New York City, a virtual open house provides an opportunity for prospective students to get a sense of the community by seeing and hearing the faculty talk about their own backgrounds and work. This will help give a fuller picture of the institution through the voices of those you will be working with. Media will be added and updated on this page throughout the year. Nothing replaces an actual visit, however, and it is strongly recommended that you attend an open house in the fall or set up a tour (contact Dean Elena Simon for more information). However, this page is a good place to begin learning about what Bard Graduate Center offers.

2017 Open House dates will be announced shortly.

In addition to Open Houses, we regularly attend a number of graduate school fairs all over the country. If you would like to know which fairs may be in your area, please contact her directly for more information, elena.simon@bgc.bard.edu.
