With the final approval from Bard College's institutional accreditor, the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE ), Parami University, and Bard College will award Parami-Bard dual bachelor degrees to Parami undergraduate students. Bard College announced the preliminary approval for a dual-degree partnership with Parami University in early July of this year.
Parami undergraduate students already receive Bard College credits on all the courses they take at Parami University. The final approval officially puts Parami students on the track to graduate with dual degrees, one from Parami University and one from Bard College. Specifically, they will receive dual associate degrees after two years and dual bachelor degrees after four years.
Through this partnership, students will
(1) Experience a high standard of academic rigor
(2) Receive the same college credits as Bard College students
(3) Graduate with a highly recognizable degree from an accredited US college
(4) Be competitive in graduate school applications at prestigious institutions worldwide
Parami University is the latest institution to join Bard's long-established dual-degree programs at Bard College Berlin, Al-Quds University in Jerusalem, and American University of Central Asia in Kyrgyzstan. Through this partnership, Parami undergraduate students are on track to receive dual degrees: one from Bard College and one from Parami University. Read more
