Seminar Series

All students are encouraged to attend the rich program of lectures, symposia, seminars, performances, lunches, and talks organized by Bard Graduate Center’s Public Humanities + Research department. We regard these events as an essential part of our MA program and important to academic formation. For this course, required for completion of the MA degree, students will attend at least ten events during their two years of study (for full-time students) and complete the 515 form which includes a list of events attended and short (c. 300 words) reflection on the experience.

Students who entered the program in fall 2022 have the option of completing 515 with the previous iteration of the requirement, wherein students attend at least ten events and actively participate at each by asking a question in at least three events per year. Students are further required to reflect on one of these questions (and answer received) in writing. 1 credit (MA only).
