Founded in 1889, Barnard College was the only college in New York City, and was one of the very few in the nation, where women could have the same rigorous education as men. Barnard helps students to find new ways to think about themselves, their world and their roles in changing it.
Barnard College offers international students a truly unique undergraduate experience. There are 2,500 undergraduates enrolled at Barnard from throughout almost all states and over 40 countries. Barnard offers degrees in about 50 fields in the humanities, social sciences, arts, natural sciences and interdisciplinary areas.
