Bennington students graduate as Bachelors of the Arts… In other words, with a BA. Don’t worry, though, your concentrations and supporting areas of study will all be reflected in your transcript!
Hmmm… An interesting proposition you make. If you think you’ve got what it takes, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org. Holly Khiel is the office taskmaster; a harsher critic there’s never been. So show her what you’ve got if you dare.
You have to complete the Social Science pre-requisite first.
For clarity: “Co-Requisite” means you must complete the two courses at the same time and “pre-requisite” means you must have already completed the required course.

Just like most communities at Bennington, the queer community is apparent in various ways. We have a group called queer @ Bennington which can be a great resource. Bennington, like most any college, is a space for you to come in with a mainly-blank slate to really explore yourself as a person, questioner, and thinker. I think Bennington establishes a safer space for queer identified or questioning youth to do just that.
If you are looking to see if you will fit in here, no worries… you will find like-minded people and be a part of various communities. As a queer individual myself, I am personally not very involved in the queer @ Bennington group; however, I still feel a part of the queer community on campus. There are various ways to be involved as a queer person on campus. I took a bunch of people to the gender and queer conference at Hampshire this term and that was a wonderful way to spend part of my weekend! If you have any other questions or just want to chat about this more, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com
I know I can only speak for myself, but I have felt very accepted here. I have enjoyed meaningful conversations with friends, events through SWAG (Sexual Wellness Awareness Group) that have opened my eyes to other conversations, and finding general acceptance of various identities on campus.
We have a beautiful printmaking studio (pictures by Selina) and some amazing student work which I don’t have a link to. As far as classes go, check out the curriculum (more will be added to Spring 2014). There are a lot of printmaking classes as well as drawing classes. You could also check out animation or architecture and other interests you have to expand your skills.
