There is no typical EUS student—though each creatively and tenaciously pursues solutions to urban and environmental problems. Our students become farmers, scientists, planners, politicians, architects, activists, educators, and journalists. Each EUS student completes an internship during their time at Bard, and some of our students continue to graduate school, sometimes at Bard's Center for Environmental Policy. 

Here are some examples of students currently pursuing their academic interests and passions through the Environmental and Urban Studies program.

Sara Xing Eisenberg grew up in Manhattan and attended the Bard High School Early College (BHSEC). After four years immersed in BHSEC's advanced curriculum, she knew Bard was the next step. “I already had a sense of the academic life, with the small classes at BHSEC and great professors, so I wanted to continue that type of education.” All of Sara’s credits transferred to Bard, which opened up opportunities in her course schedule and even allowed her to work on her Senior Project abroad. Sara is now completing a joint major in Environmental and Urban Studies (EUS) and Asian Studies. Expand for Sara Xing Eisenberg Read More

Hannah Baird grew up in the small town of Homer, Alaska. "It's pretty much the middle of nowhere," she laughs. "A very quaint fishing village." As a singer, she was drawn to Bard's Music Program and Conservatory. She visited campus, took a tour, and met with members of the Bard faculty. "The professors wanted to interact with the students on a one-on-one basis, which was not the style of the education I grew up with. I was really drawn to that." Expand for Hannah Baird Read More
