Science Research Opportunities

At Bard, we believe that science is learned best through the experience of doing research. For this reason, we offer research opportunities available to ambitious Bard students throughout their college careers.

We also offer intensive experiences for students who want to work on their projects full time. Students in the Bard Summer Research Program conduct 10-week investigations with Bard faculty during the summer months. Juniors can apply to participate in the Bard-Rockefeller Semester in Science Program (BRSS) during the spring semester. BRSS students live at Bard Hall in New York City, work 20–25 hours in the lab with Rockefeller University faculty, and take specially designed classes at Rockefeller and at Bard’s Globalization and International Affairs Program.

In their final year, all students at Bard complete a Senior Project for which they design, conduct, analyze, interpret, and present a scientific investigation of their own.
