Now in its seventh season, Bard SummerScape offers a tapestry of interwoven events in the disciplines of opera, music, theater, dance, film, and cabaret, all of them keyed to the theme of the annual Bard Music Festival. The events are presented in the acoustically superb Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts, designed by Frank Gehry, and other venues on Bard College’s stunning Hudson River campus.

The Jewish Studies Program at Bard College

The Jewish Studies Program takes an interdisciplinary approach to exploring the many facets of the Jewish experience, with course offerings ranging widely across several millennia and continents. Students concentrating in Jewish Studies also moderate into a divisional program such as history, religion, literature, or sociology. Students may focus, for example, on the classic texts of rabbinic Judaism; the new forms of Jewish identity and culture to emerge in the modern era; Hebrew language and literature; or the dynamics of contemporary Jewish life in Israel or the United States.

The Religion Program at Bard College

Religious ideas and practices have been crucial in shaping distinctive human societies throughout history, and they continue to exercise critical influence in the world of the 21st century. In the Religion Program at Bard we study the various phenomena we call "religion" for many reasons: for their intrinsic interest; to understand how particular religious expressions may reinforce or challenge their own social and historical settings; and to consider how they may also challenge and broaden our own understandings of the world.
