Bard Graduate Center offers a summer program annually at our New York City location. Intended for both undergraduates and recent graduates, the two-week intensive course combines museum and gallery visits with lectures and small-group discussions. Topics vary annually, reflecting the global and disciplinary range of our faculty. In 2022, the topic was “Re-Dress and Re-Form: Innovations in the History of Fashion and Design, 1850 to Today.” The topic for summer 2023 will be announced later this year and applications will be due in April, 2023.

Housing is available, as are tuition scholarships. And the course is eligible for three undergraduate Bard College credits.
