An Education for Tomorrow

  • A Flexible Curriculum

    The Barnard Foundations curriculum encourages you to explore widely across disciplines, discover new territory, and then dive deep. It’s structured to ensure that you examine the world through a variety of lenses.

  • Advanced Research Opportunities

    In order to solve problems, you have to think critically and creatively. At Barnard, you have multiple opportunities to hone these skills through faculty-mentored, structured research in the sciences or humanities.

  • Digital Literacy Across Disciplines

    Dancers research the data of movement. Historians build digital visualizations of complex ideas. You’ll need digital skills whatever your discipline, and Barnard is the first liberal arts school to require that you learn to interpret and create digitally.
