Animal Conservation and Care
Bachelor of Arts (BA)
Green Mountain College in Poultney, VT
Our attitudes toward animals are related to how we eat, how we live, and how we respect our natural or domestic environments. The world needs thoughtful advocates for animals in agriculture, policy, law and wildlife conservation. Animal Conservation & Care is a growing field emerging in response to human impact on wild and domestic animals. The major serves students who want to ensure that we have a positive influence on animal populations and individuals. Students are free to choose their own path focusing on wild populations, livestock or domestic animals. Increased interest in this major reflects a rising concern about human-wildlife conflicts, animal use, and animal welfare. Through exploration of animal interactions, along with the influences that humans and nonhuman animals exert on each other’s lives, this interdisciplinary program serves students with exposure to different perspectives, including sustainable agriculture, captive animal care, philosophy, biology, natural resource management, policy, and law. The major is offered as either a Bachelor of Science degree (for those interested in applied science occupations like wildlife management or veterinary care) or a Bachelor of Arts degree (for students interested in a range of careers, from domestic animal welfare to wildlife conservation. Green Mountain College has many local resources that support the study of animals. For the study of domestic animals, this includes our 22-acre Cerridwen Farm right on campus as well as the local farming communities in both Vermont and New York, including local dairies and horseback riding facilities. For the study of wild populations, resources include field opportunities on campus along the river, at the Dean Preserve and the local Lake Champlain and Hudson River watersheds.

Animation & Production Design
Bachelor of Arts (BA)
Bennington College in Bennington, VT
Animation incorporates both the visual and performing arts. Students learn the fundamentals of producing an animation: from using stop motion and single cell drawings, to creating models and objects and erasing drawings, to using CGI and other techniques to create a world. The software and hardware covered includes DragonFrame, MAYA, Adobe After Effects, Premier, Photoshop, laser cutting for silhouettes and forms, green screen areas, multi-plane set ups, copy stands, and motion tracks. Subjects used as catalysts for the animations range from current affairs, narratives, to poems, short stories, or visual stimuli. Students are encouraged to consider their work in a wide historical context as they work to master technical developments. Students, at times, draw on and combine their work in other areas when creating advanced projects, whether music, Chinese, French, philosophy, biology, drama, or other visual arts areas. The emphasis is on exploration, bringing life to mundane objects, and giving a voice to a drawing, an image, an inanimate object. At the end of each term there is a public showing of the final animations from each class. Recent graduate schools students were accepted into include: Cal Arts, Royal College of Art, London, University of Southern California, University of South Wales, UK, University of Edinburgh, UK. Projection Design Projection design reaches across the visual arts, drama, music, and dance. Designs and projections are developed to alter a space, bring in more information to a theatre production or act as a texture for surfaces. Students use live manipulated footage, previously created footage, and project on a variety of surfaces and spaces. The software Isadora, QLab, and various editing software are used. Set Design Set/production design is anchored in the drama program and gives students the opportunity to learn the basics of designing for a performance, as well as opportunities to design student- and faculty-directed productions. Additionally, students have created puppet shows range from small, one-person events to much larger affairs.

Ecological Studies
Bachelor of Arts (BA)
Castleton University in Castleton, VT
The Ecological Studies program includes core courses in biology and ecology. Along with fundamental chemistry, GIS and geology sequences and a course each in biostatistics and environmental ethics, students gain a well- rounded scientific framework in which to solve environmental problems. After your second semester you will have the opportunity to participate in Science Colloquium, which introduces students to guest scientists in academia, government and industry in order to expose students to the numerous opportunities available beyond Castleton. Our department also offers study abroad opportunities with our own faculty to explore the Mohave Desert, Costa Rican rainforests, near shore reefs off of St. John U.S.V.I. and thermal springs in Iceland. Explore Small class sizes and the laboratory components of our courses ensure a hands-on, experiential learning environment. As a small institution, we are able to provide all students access to a variety of state-of-the-art instrumentation in both our teaching and research labs. From microbes to ecosystems, students acquire and practice fundamental skills required to solve problems both local and global in nature. The multidisciplinary aspect of our department enables students to explore the connections of ecology to other areas of natural science. While the interdisciplinary aspect of the major allows students to connect with fields outside of the sciences. Research and Internships Ecological Studies majors are encouraged to participate in either internships or independent research in their field of study during their time at Castleton. Our faculty have diverse research interests. Some of this research is funded externally through grants awarded to our faculty where students have the opportunity to work intensively with faculty over the summer months and get paid a stipend. It is strongly recommended that students who wish to pursue graduate studies work with our faculty on independent projects. Some of the recent student research related to ecology include: using mark-recapture techniques to assess salamander populations, analyzing microhabitat use by sidewinder rattlesnakes, monitoring nutrient export in the Castleton River, and determination of the indirect photochemical decay of BPA. Nearly all of our students that participate in research present their work at the Annual Castleton Scholars Celebration and at various regional and national conferences. Internships are also a great way to make contacts and get experience. Working with the Fish and Wildlife Service mist netting local bat populations, as an animal care and exhibit specialists at Echo Lake Aquarium and Science Center and as an interpretative naturalist at Vermont State Parks are just some of the internships in which our students have participated. The B.A. in Ecological Studies offers students an opportunity to explore the science of ecology and the environment within the tradition of the liberal arts major. The multidisciplinary curriculum cultivates a broad understanding of the interconnectedness of living organisms and environmental systems, including the interactions between humans and the natural world.
