The Experience

The Breaking In program will be held on the beautiful, 300-acre campus of Bard College at Simon’s Rock in the heart of the Berkshire Mountains in Great Barrington, Ma. Each session will be limited to no more than 26 students, and there will be at least three senior and three junior faculty to guide and instruct you at all times.

For virtually all of your time at Breaking In you’ll be face-to face with our faculty who will help you understand how today’s Media & Entertainment business works…what kind of careers you can expect to find…what are the demands and rewards of those careers…which of them are likely to stand the test of time? Most important, our experts will tell you how the choices they made when they were your age helped them get where they are today…information that can help you make the choices that will give you the best chance of success in the Media & Entertainment business.

Best of all, your personal questions and interests will be part of the Breaking In curriculum. Our large number of senior and junior faculty guarantees that you’ll have a chance to talk with our experts one-on-one, as well as in group discussions.
