Research Opportunities

Students conduct research during the year, both independently and as part of faculty projects. All seniors in computer science undertake the required Senior Project, a yearlong investigation of one topic. Students who receive a Distinguished Scientist Scholarship are eligible for summer research funding.

Senior Projects

The Senior Project is required of every Bard student and is the culminating experience of four years of academic work at the College. It is often the longest and most complex piece of academic work a student undertakes. The Senior Project in computer science can be theoretical or applied and is often interdisciplinary.
