Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages
Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT)
Marlboro College Graduate & Professional Studies in Marlboro, VT
The Marlboro MATESOL program is for those who want to do more than teach English to speakers of other languages. It is for those who are curious and innovative, who are passionate about what they do, and who want to teach with intention, mindfulness and courage. The program prepares teachers who are aware of the complex role of English in the world today and who base their practice on learning-centredness, inter-cultural understanding, group learning, and critical reflection. Licensed teachers are also welcome to apply. Marlboro College offers a number of awards to students who share our values of community service, engaged learning, and social responsibility. You could be eligible for an attractive award to help pay for your MA-TESOL program. Our graduates teach in adult learning centers, community colleges, private language schools and intensive English programs at colleges or universities around the world. The degree also provides materials developers and administrators with a foundation in the learning and teaching of English as well as in language instruction design. The program runs over 15 months. Students complete two eight-week summer terms on site in Marlboro, Vermont. In the interim academic year, they engage in a teaching practicum, either in their own classroom or through another placement, supported by master teacher supervision and rigorous reflective practice. The English for Refuges Fellowship is offered in partnership with the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI).

Political Science
Bachelor of Arts (BA)
University of Vermont in Burlington, VT
Harold Lasswell, one of the founders of political science as an academic discipline, defined the field as the study of “who gets what, when and how.” As the role of the state has grown – in the economy, education, environment, health, culture, international interactions and many other fields – understanding the political process has become essential to explaining modern life. Politics is about power, the ends to which power is deployed and the normative questions that arise from that deployment. Studying political science can help you understand power, its uses and misuses and the consequences (both intended and unintended) of its use. Political scientists explore these issues in a variety of ways, from concentrating on the wisdom of the great political thinkers of antiquity to analyzing the most recent events at the local, state, national and international levels. The academic field of political science is divided into four subfields: American politics, political theory, international relations and comparative politics (the study of the domestic politics of countries other than the United States). At the University of Vermont, students can take courses in all four subfields from experienced teachers who are also leading scholars in their areas of research. Majoring in political science does not prepare a student for a specific profession, the way that majoring in nursing or accounting would. It grounds the student in basic concepts of politics and governance, while providing the tools for critical thinking and writing that are necessary for a broad range of professional careers (APSA - Careers in Political Science). The political science major is a traditional pathway to law school, and UVM’s Political Science Department does an excellent job in preparing its students for the study of law. We have a range of courses on the American legal system, a large concentration of faculty in the area and an active pre-law advising program. But majoring in political science gives students many more options as well. Graduates of the UVM Political Science Department have gone on to graduate studies in political science, international affairs, and other fields. Our majors have taken jobs in Federal, state and local governments, journalism, advocacy groups, non-governmental organizations, high school teaching, business, financial services and many other fields.
