Degree Programs

BA students at Commencement

Bard College Berlin offers two Bachelor of Arts degrees:

BA in Humanities, the Arts, and Social Thought 

BA in Economics, Politics, and Social Thought 

Both programs provide an immersion in intellectual history from antiquity to the present day, preparing students for advanced study in a range of disciplines, while ensuring that they gain specialist knowledge and a distinctive profile of study in a particular field of the humanities or social sciences. Small-group teaching and individual academic advising are a feature of both programs, as is progression toward independent research, and the chance to experience the functioning and development of real-world institutions and projects. Study abroad, through the ERASMUS network or at Bard College New York or in the international Bard network is possible in both degrees, as is study at institutions around the world with which Bard College Berlin has exchange agreements. Both degrees begin with an intensive introductory program that equips students for the demands of writing at university level.
