The BA/MA 3+2 program offers Bard undergraduates a streamlined path to a Master of Arts in Decorative Arts, Design History, Material Culture. Open to undergraduates majoring in history, art history, and anthropology, this program pursues an integrated course of study and graduate training that allows Bard students to obtain their liberal arts BA and the Bard Graduate Center MA in five years.

Interested students must first meet all of their distribution requirements, have a successful moderation into history, art history, or anthropology, and get approval from their undergraduate advisor. In their third year they then apply to BGC during the normal admissions cycle. Students enroll full-time in Bard Graduate Center’s two-year MA program in Manhattan starting in their fourth year.
