Fundamentals of Artisan Cheese
Non-Degree Course
Sterling College in Craftsbury Common, VT
The School of the New American Farmstead at Sterling College offers “Fundamentals of Artisan Cheese,” an intensive eight-day program for aspiring and practicing cheesemakers. This unique course is offered in partnership with the Cellars at Jasper Hill, an American Cheese Society-certified cheese professional educator and producer of award-winning, perfectly ripened, single-source cheeses from the verdant working landscape of Vermont. Led by world-renowned master cheesemaker and educator Ivan Larcher, “Fundamentals of Artisan Cheese” provides students with the practical and scientific knowledge needed to create exquisite small-scale artisanal cheese. This course offers a whole-system perspective on cheesemaking, which begins on the farm and requires careful attention to animal husbandry and welfare, forage and feed, dairy production, and milk quality. After covering the production of extraordinary milk, the course dives deep into both the science and art of cheesemaking by exploring raw and pasteurized milk theory, cheese microbiology, coagulants, curdling mechanisms, and starters. In classroom lecture sessions as well as hands-on and observational cheese making, particular attention is paid to the artisanal production of lactic, hard, soft, Saint Nectaire, and traditional brie cheeses. After learning to make this array of cheeses, focus shifts to affinage, with attention to ripening cultures, climate control, rind treatment, and handling throughout the aging process. Because great cheesemaking can not be reduced to rote, recipe-driven work, sensory and tasting skills are developed. A session on defects and troubleshooting provides invaluable tools for managing production and working through the challenges of the inherently variable ecological processes of cheesemaking and aging. In sessions offered on the Sterling College campus in Craftsbury Common, at Jasper Hill in Greensboro, and at the Vermont Food Venture Center in Hardwick, Vermont, students also learn about the business of cheesemaking, sales and distribution, and content-based marketing. Attention to critical food safety concerns, an on-site food sanitation workshop, and an overview of plant design round out the curriculum. This course is suitable for confident beginners and capable practitioners alike. The small class size makes it possible for the instructors to tailor content to individual learning goals and have one-on-one conversations. We do, however, recommend that students have some cheesemaking experience, even if only at the home scale, before beginning the class.

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.
