Studying abroad, living another culture, and learning a new language opens endless opportunities and experiences. It can also be a lot of work lining up proper paperwork/documentation and ensuring that you receive academic credit for your studies.
Language Intensives and Study Abroad
Most foreign languages taught at Bard can be studied in an intensive format that offers both an accelerated pace of learning at Bard and a one- or two-month program, offered either during the summer or winter break, in a country of the language of study. These programs are designed to build on academic year studies and help students gain a command of a foreign language. The intensive format allows students to complete the equivalent of two years of language study in a few months. The immersion format, currently offered in German, is even more accelerated than the intensive format.
