Engineering Programs with Columbia University

 

1.    3-2 program: A student transfers to Columbia’s school of engineering at the end of the junior year at Bard, and, upon completing Columbia’s two-year program, qualifies for both a B.A. from Bard and a B.S. from Columbia. The student needs to complete all the course requirements for their Bard major within their 3 years at Bard.  Admission to this program is contingent on fulfilling the prerequisites outlined in the Columbia Pre-Combined Plan Curriculum Guide (available online at http://www.bard.edu/academics/programs/3+2/) and meeting grade requirements. A Senior Project is NOT required.

 

2.    4-2 program, leading to B.A. and B.S. degrees: A student completes the entire four-year program at Bard and after two years at Columbia qualifies for the Bard B.A. and the B.S. degree from Columbia.  Admission to the Columbia B.A./B.S. programs is guaranteed, contingent on fulfillment of Bard major and distribution requirements, on fulfilling the prerequisites outlined in the Columbia Pre-Combined Plan Curriculum Guide (available online at http://www.bard.edu/academics/programs/3+2/), and meeting grade requirements..  A Senior Project IS required for this option.

 

3.    4-2 program, leading to B.A. and M.S. degrees: A student completes the entire four-year program at Bard and then applies to the M.S. program at Columbia University. Admission to Columbia Engineering is contingent on fulfilling the prerequisites outlined in the Columbia Pre-Combined Plan Curriculum Guide (available online at http://www.bard.edu/academics/programs/3+2/) and meeting grade requirements. Admission to the Columbia M.S. program is NOT guaranteed.  A Senior Project IS required for this option.

 

Engineering Programs with Dartmouth College

 

1.    3-2 program: A student transfers to Dartmouth’s school of engineering at the end of the junior year at Bard, and, upon completing Dartmouth’s two-year program, qualifies for both a B.A. from Bard and a B.E. from Dartmouth. The student needs to complete all the course requirements for their Bard major within their 3 years at Bard.  Admission to the Dartmouth program is competitive and contingent on fulfillment of Bard’s major and distribution requirements and preparatory courses described at http://engineering.dartmouth.edu/academics/undergraduate/dual/. A Senior Project is NOT required.

 

2.    2-1-1-1 program: A student spends two years at Bard, one at Dartmouth, one at Bard, and a final year at Dartmouth.  The student needs to complete all the course requirements for their Bard major within their 3 years at Bard.  The student then qualifies for both a B.A. from Bard and a B.E. from Dartmouth.   A Senior Project is NOT required for this option.
