Innovators, activists, and leaders in their fields, fearless Barnard women make their mark in the world.
I was exploring, and a college like Barnard is so wonderful for that. There are all of these other worlds right around the corner or on the other floor of the building.
Barnard has been bold from the beginning — ever since a group of women succeeded in establishing New York City’s first college that offered women the same rigorous higher education available to men.
Barnard is one with the City — its nonstop energy, its diversity, its boundless imagination. Studying in NYC presents students with a world of opportunity.
Whatever your major at Barnard, you’ll have hands-on experiences that give you a deeper understanding of the topics you explore in the classroom. You’ll generate new ideas and communicate them in a way that can change how people understand the world.
Mindfulness training, sexuality talks, identity explorations — you don’t just feed your mind at Barnard. You learn to nourish your entire being.
