Undergraduate Programs in Sustainability
Environmental stewardship is a core element of Bard’s emphasis on civic engagement and social responsibility. The College offers rigorous, interdisciplinary training in environmental studies and ensures that all undergraduate students receive science education. The January-term Citizen Science intensive is required of all Bard first-year students, and the Environmental and Urban Studies (EUS) Program offers majors a solid background in the sciences, humanities, economics, and policy.
Since arriving at Bard last fall, first-year Khadija Ghanizada ’23 has been working to create a sustainable and engaged campus community, because she believes that “every individual can make a difference.” Most recently, during Citizen Science, she operated her own waste sorting game, giving Bardians the proper educational tools to be able to easily sort their own compost, recycling, and landfill.
