MRI Physics for Technologists
Non-Degree Course
University of Vermont in Burlington, VT
This online course is designed primarily for radiologic technologists who would like to learn more about MRI physics with the goal of becoming an MR technologist. In addition, it would also potentially be very useful for current MR technologists who will be taking ARRT board exams in the future or would simply benefit from a more comprehensive and coherent MR physics training. Students in adjacent fields (biomedical engineering, radiological assistants) may also find this practical physics course highly valuable. Textbook readings will be combined with supplemental 3D animations and video lectures, flexible tutoring time with the instructor, as well as homework exercises specifically intended to either prepare you for the ARRT exam or develop practical skills for working as an MR technologists. Despite the online format, the instructor offers a weekly individual check-in discussion to help ensure that students are successfully progressing in the course. This is the first in a series of courses in development for the education of future MR technologists. The other courses will include Cross Sectional Anatomy and Pathology (taught by UVM radiologists), MRI Lab (in the UVM MRI research lab), and MRI Practicum. The goal is to establish an efficient and effective path to better prepare all future MR technologists.

Founded in 1965, the Middlebury College Environmental Studies Program is the oldest undergraduate ES program in the United States. Our program brings together a community of scholars and students engaged in the study of the human relationship to the environment from many different directions, across 24 departments on our campus. Our ten core faculty members and forty affiliated faculty colleagues together offer an interdisciplinary major and minor. Both foster in students a shared base of knowledge across the humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences. Three introductory core courses, Natural Science and the Environment, Conservation and Environmental Policy, and Nature’s Meanings: The American Experience, prepare students to focus their studies in one of fourteen disciplines: Conservation Biology, Environmental Chemistry, Environmental Geology, Conservation Psychology, Environmental Economics, Environmental Policy, Geography, Human Ecology, Architecture and the Environment, Creative Arts, Environmental History, Environmental Nonfiction, Literature, Religion Philosophy and the Environment. Two-thirds of all environmental studies majors study abroad for one semester at schools and programs across Europe, Asia, Africa, Latin America, and Australia. Our senior majors collaborate on a community-connected learning project in partnership with local environmental organizations in the Senior Seminar. ES majors and minors graduate with in-depth knowledge of the American story of human-environmental interaction, but also recognize that there are other stories, often strikingly different, from other parts of the world. With 900+ graduates, our alums work in environmental fields as entrepreneurs, scientists, policy makers, scholars, consultants, teachers, volunteers, activists, and founders of non-profits.

Environmental Studies
Bachelor of Arts (BA)
Saint Michael's College in Colchester, VT
As an environmental studies major at Saint Michael's, you will investigate important domestic and global environmental problems and learn how to help create a more sustainable world. You will get outside the classroom for engaged learning that reflects the social justice mission of the college through internships, study abroad, community projects, and collaborative research with faculty. You can also participate in sustainability and environmental justice projects on campus such as recycling and energy efficiency, working in the organic garden, and activism through environmentally-conscious clubs such as Green Up, Food for Thought, the Fair Trade Committee and the Divestment Campaign. As an environmental studies major you will enroll in an interdisciplinary core of courses team-taught by faculty from the humanities, social sciences and natural sciences. Building on this core, you can then choose from three tracks for the major: Environmental Imagination is for students interested in exploring how different intellectual and creative traditions have imagined nature in the past and how they continue to inspire new perspectives on the relationship between human beings and the natural world in the present and for the future. Environmental Justice and Sustainability is focused upon the social science of decision-making around some of the most important global challenges of our time: climate change, the potential of fair trade, and of domestic and international initiatives to protect the environment. Environmental Science and Policy gives students a deeper understanding of the ways in which scientific knowledge and discovery is used to form environmental policy. The sophomore-level Environmental Research Methods course will take you into the field in Vermont urban and rural communities, as well as natural environments, to focus on specific skills in the social and natural sciences that relate to environmental problems. In Environmental Studies Practicum you will apply those skills in the world outside the classroom. In Senior Seminar you will complete a capstone research project. There are a number of courses in other departments which can count towards Environmental Studies requirements, such as Environmental Economics, Global Environmental Politics, and Human Behavior and the Environment. Your faculty advisor will work with you to develop a curriculum plan that matches your interests and career goals. At Saint Michael's environmental studies students are involved in partnerships with local and international non-governmental organizations, businesses and government agencies so you'll have many opportunities to make a positive contribution to environmental change while acquiring skills needed for work or graduate study. Environmental studies majors are very active in the college's student research programs. Funding is available for students to conduct summer research projects working with faculty. The number and kinds of careers in the environmental field are growing rapidly. Many organizations, including for-profit corporations and non-profit institutions, now have a sustainability office with at least one staff member taking the lead on environmental efforts. The fully interdisciplinary nature of our program prepares graduates well to work with a variety of constituencies within organizations on environmental initiatives since the skills required for that work go beyond scientific understanding of environmental problems. Graduates of our Environmental Studies program are well prepared to pursue careers in the fields of environmental conservation, environmental management, environmental education, and green business. The program also prepare students for post-graduate study in environmental law, green M.B.A., environmental sustainability, environmental studies, ethics, conservation, management and policy programs. Saint Michael's has an articulation agreement with the Vermont Law School that guarantees admission to the J.D. program or the Masters of Environmental Law and Policy program for qualified Saint Michael's College graduates.
