Dual Degree Partnerships
Al-Quds Bard College for Arts & Sciences*
Al-Quds Bard represents the first dual-degree partnership between a U.S. and Palestinian institution of higher education.

American University of Central Asia*
American University of Central Asia is a multi-disciplinary learning community in the American liberal arts tradition. AUCA is the first university in Central Asia to offer US accredited dual-degrees in liberal arts through its partnership with Bard College.
Bard College Berlin*
True to the principles of liberal arts education, Bard College Berlin offers interdisciplinary programs in the humanities and social sciences, with a strong focus on individual growth and the development of essential skills in writing and thinking. Students engage in an integrated inquiry into the intellectual and cultural history of the contemporary world before choosing to specialize in an area of the humanities or social sciences.
Other International Partners
Fulbright University of Vietnam
Vietnam faces a disconnect between its educational priorities and the demand for skilled employees. While Vietnamese students perform well on standard academic tests, employers consistently report that students lack the skills needed to excel, as reflected in the high underemployment rate of college graduates. Fulbright University Vietnam strives to close the gap between higher education and Vietnam’s greatest needs.
