面向未来的教育

Curious. Flexible. Digital.

With the world’s accumulated knowledge just a click away, what matters today — and will matter even more tomorrow — is thinking rather than knowing.

You’ll graduate from Barnard with an intellectual mindset that will help you adapt as the world shifts: a willingness to take risks and innovate, an intellectual breadth that keeps you nimble, a curiosity that welcomes the new. You’ll be prepared to speak up skillfully so you can help chart the direction that change takes. And you’ll have the tools you need to study the world through many lenses — textual, archival, 数学, empirical, artistic, and digital. These lenses let you approach problems from a freer perspective. And they’ll help you create solutions to challenges we can’t even imagine today.
