History
Bachelor of Arts (BA)
University of Vermont in Burlington, VT

Art History
Bachelor of Arts (BA)
University of Vermont in Burlington, VT
The Art History program initially surveys a broad range of expressive forms before continuing with courses specific to a variety of ancient, western, non-western, and contemporary topics. Courses lead to the B.A. in Art History. The study of the history of art at UVM usually begins with courses surveying the broad range of visual expressions found in a variety of cultures throughout the world. Students are introduced to numerous methodological approaches — contextual, formal, and iconographic, for example — which enable them to understand the richness and layered meanings of works of art. For those who choose to major in this humanistic discipline, mastery of a foreign language, usually French or German, through the intermediate level and at least two courses in Studio Art provide additional tools useful in responding skillfully to works of art. UVM Art History majors have followed a variety of paths upon graduation. Some have continued their studies in Art History at the graduate level and are now teaching at such major universities as Columbia, Duke, and Stanford. Others have assumed professional positions in museums, auction houses, publishing, and related fields. Still others have combined their studies in Art History with postgraduate study in areas such as Law or Library Science and have continued into careers combining these preparations. Some have used the major as a way to sharpen their analytical skills in thinking and creative problem solving and have then gone on to pursue seemingly unrelated careers in fields such as medicine or business. No matter what path they have followed after graduation, most students have commented on the quality of the Art History program at UVM noting how it has enriched their lives and sharpened their visual responses to the world around them.

Architechtual Studies
Bachelor of Arts (BA)
Middlebury College in Middlebury, VT

It also helps them develop the skills and credentials necessary for admission to graduate study in architecture.

Higher Education and Student Affairs Administration
Master of Education (MEd)
University of Vermont in Burlington, VT
The Higher Education and Student Affairs Administration program is designed to prepare professionals to apply student development, organizational, foundational, multicultural and administrative principles to work with students. Working closely with faculty and in-place practitioners, graduate students in the program are challenged to experience an unparalleled learning experience. Graduates from the Higher Education and Student Affairs Administration program pursue careers as professionals in colleges and universities, as well as in fields related to higher education throughout the country. Many professionals in this field serve as policy makers, advisors, student service providers, researchers, programmers, consultants, and administrators. Common to each functional area in student affairs and higher education is the goal to design environments conducive to students' growth and development. The HESA graduate program enrolls approximately 15-18 students per year in the full-time two-year program. The small cohort size facilitates strong and enduring relationships among students and faculty. A wide spectrum of undergraduate majors, geographic locations, previous experiences, and cultural backgrounds are represented in the class cohorts. These diverse perspectives enrich the overall educational environment and expand social awareness. Part-time enrollment is also an option and students work with a faculty advisor to plan course sequencing. An array of 60 practicum internships, 30 graduate assistantship placements, and paid and volunteer professional practice opportunities help students integrate their conceptual knowledge with student affairs and higher education practice. Assistantships are housed in College of Education and Social Services, Student Services Offices, Office of Student Life, Orientation, Leadership and Civic Engagement, and Residential Life (these offerings change from year to year). Assistantships cover tuition for twenty credits of study each year and a bimonthly stipend. The academic program admissions process (December 1) and the assistantship application process (December 1 deadline) are separate from each other. Selected candidates are invited to interview for admission and for assistantships at times held concurrently in the spring of each year. Practica experiences (three selections during the course of the degree) are available within university and local college offices.
