Welcome to Bard College Berlin, A Liberal Arts University!

Bard College Berlin was founded with the aim of returning small-group seminar teaching and interdisciplinary undergraduate education in the liberal arts to the highest levels of the European university context where it first originated. With an innovative and challenging core curriculum, a small and highly international student body, and a world-class teaching faculty, Bard College Berlin provides a range and depth of education that is unique. We believe that specialized study in individual disciplines should proceed on the basis of a broad and thorough knowledge of intellectual traditions and the major debates, works, and transformations that have animated them.


Join us for Open Day on November 7!
