Dear Psychology Students:

Welcome to the Bard College Psychology Program!

This Psychology Handbook was created to serve as a general guide to use as you embark or continue on your studies with us. Please read this Handbook carefully; this represents the most up-to-date guidelines and procedures for the Program. As you’ll see, information is included about events, moderation, senior project, and the psychology faculty. We hope you find this information useful.

The most recent version of this handbook, and more details about the Psychology Program, can always be found on the program website (https://psychology.bard.edu). Past handbooks are also available in PDF format on the website.1

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact any of the faculty in the Psychology Program.

We look forward to working with all of you, and we wish you the best for a productive and successful year.

    Frank Scalzo, PhD
