Each program prepares its students for the intellectual and practical challenges of their profession through research seminars, exhibition practicums, studio and performance critiques, chamber recitals, and professional internships, with scholars, practicing artists, curators, environmental policy makers, and educators. In culmination of these studies, the students prepare original scholarly theses, offer readings and group exhibitions of their creative work, curate exhibitions in the Center for Curatorial Studies galleries, and perform in concerts at Bard's Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts.
