Communication Sciences and Disorders
Bachelor of Science (BS)
University of Vermont in Burlington, VT
UVM's Communication Sciences and Disorders program introduces students to the form and structure of language - how language is learned, produced, perceived, and understood - including the physical, neurophysiological, cognitive, and linguistic bases of speaking, hearing, and language use; the development of language in children; and the acoustics of sound and speech. Students are prepared for evidence-based practice in the field through specialty courses taught by internationally-known faculty, the incorporation of guided speech-language pathology and audiology observations, and opportunities for involvement in faculty research. This major leads to a Bachelor of Science. The major provides the breadth of a liberal arts education plus an introduction to the health sciences, as well as in-depth information about human communication, including opportunities to explore the fields of speech-language pathology and audiology. Students are introduced to a variety of communication disorders through classes, observations, and clinical activities. A minimum of 120 credits, a minor, and a GPA of 2.5 are required for the Communication Sciences and Disorders major. Students with a semester and/or cumulative grade point average below 2.5 will be placed on trial for one semester. Students are allowed one trial period while in the Communication Sciences and Disorders program, and must maintain semester and cumulative grade point averages of 2.5 or higher for the duration of the program following a semester on trial. Failure to do so will result in discontinuation from the program. In addition, students who earn a grade of C-, D, or F in any CSD, LING, or PSYS course twice, or once in two separate courses, will be discontinued from the program. Working as a speech-language pathologist (SLP) requires a master’s degree, clinical certification from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, and state licensure. Positions in audiology require a professional doctorate, the Au.D., or a scholarly Ph.D. Employment opportunities for fully qualified speech-language pathologists and audiologists exist in birth-to-three programs, public schools, medical centers, nursing homes, and private practices. The profession is a growing one with excellent opportunities for future employment. A bachelor’s degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders prepares students for a wide variety of careers, some of which require a graduate degree and some of which do not. Students can prepare to work as speech-language pathology assistants (SLPAs), audiology assistants, or in many other fields such as education, psychology, linguistics, cognitive science, or medicine.

Languages
Bachelor of Arts (BA)
Bennington College in Bennington, VT
At Bennington, students learn a language while creating with it. From day one, reading and writing, listening and speaking are all directed towards discussing complex cultural ideas, leading students to perform, tell stories, conduct research, create art objects, and analyze cultural artifacts. Above all, content drives course design; faculty offer classes that draw on their own expertise and respond to the needs and interests of students. Faculty curate materials to stimulate intellectual discovery and teach students to read and listen critically to various types of texts. At all levels of instruction, small seminars allow students to challenge preconceived notions, compare and defend ideas, and develop linguistic proficiency. Students are encouraged to draw on their work in other disciplines, time abroad, and Field Work Term experiences, all of which enrich classroom discussions and inform advanced work. In projects for language classes, students have written and directed plays, made comics and animation, choreographed dances, performed songs, created films and video essays, and written poems, theses, translations, and creative works. The emphasis on language proficiency through diverse content allows our graduates to make a seamless transition into the working world of ideas. Recent graduates have pursued work in areas including arts administration, environmental entrepreneurship, cultural mediation, curriculum design, education, language pedagogy, research, theater and dance as well as pursuing graduate studies in literature, education, art history, and environmental studies.

Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages
Master of Arts (MA)
Saint Michael's College in Colchester, VT
The Master of Arts in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (MATESOL) degree may be earned over three semesters based on fall entry although many students require an additional semester or two depending on their program and semester of entry. The degree may also be earned in part-time study or in three or more summer semesters. The OnCampus + OnLine option allows the program to be completed in two summers on campus, with the remaining coursework completed online. International students must apply at least 90 days prior to the first class meeting of the term in which they wish to enter. No more than 12 credits may be taken during any given semester without written approval from the program director. The MATESOL program offers several tracks that accommodate a number of career plans, allowing our students to pick the option that best suits their needs. The regular MATESOL program brings both American and international students together on campus for coursework that prepares them to teach English to international students in domestic or overseas language programs. A thesis option exists for those students interested in a more research-oriented focus. The MATESOL + Pre-K-12 Licensure track, in conjunction with the Graduate Education Department, qualifies students as licensed teachers of English learners, in grades pre-K through 12, in Vermont public schools. The Vermont teaching license has reciprocity with most other states in the U.S. The Graduate Certificate program offers a foundational qualification in TESOL for students who do not require a full Master’s degree. The MATESOL + Pre-K-12 English Language Learners (ELL) Endorsement track is an opportunity for teachers already Vermont-licensed in other content areas to become certified in teaching ELL.

Greek and Latin Languages
Certificate (CERT)
University of Vermont in Burlington, VT
Students and scholars in many disciplines (e.g. classics, history, English, Medieval studies, religious studies, philosophy) need proficiency in Latin and Greek to carry out research. Other students come to classics too late in their undergraduate career to acquire language proficiency at a level which qualifies them for Ph.D. or M.A.T. programs. Still other students are high school teachers who want to expand their repertoire of teaching subjects or who simply want to improve their mastery of their subject matter. Every year, excellent students inquire about the M.A. program who do not have sufficient Greek or Latin. Although some students may need to take a course or two prior to formally beginning the program in order to bring their Greek or Latin up to the level at which courses count for the certificate, this certificate offers an intensive language experience designed for such students.

Spanish Language and Literature
Bachelor of Arts (BA)
Castleton University in Castleton, VT
The Modern Foreign Language The Castleton Spanish Program makes it possible for students to acquire cultural knowledge and to become proficient in the Spanish language in an environment that embraces a holistic approach and retains a genuine interest in cultivating the love for the Spanish languages and cultures. Our teaching faculty is composed of native speakers from different parts of the Spanish speaking countries; we have a professor from Peru, another from Argentina, and each year we have a teaching assistant typically from Mexico. A Program with Many Activities Our students benefit from a diverse student population: some native speakers, others that have gone abroad to study Spanish, and novice but ambitious Vermont and out-of-state students. The program offers small, yet personalized classes that are learner-centered. Our students may voice their interests and opinions at our weekly Spanish Club meetings. They are offered an opportunity to practice their communicative skills outside the classroom setting at our weekly language table meetings. They can put their creativity and competitive minds to work at our cultural semester agenda, which includes cooking workshops, dance classes, film showings, our Spanish radio program and/or our full immersion field trips to cities such as New York, Boston, or Montreal. Each semester brings in new forces and special people that help us define the particular needs for that time period. Our students have had hands-on experience while translating official documents and they had a unique opportunity to teach Spanish to the little ones from a local middle school. As Spanish is increasingly being spoken in more areas and by more people, we will continue to find new ways to relate our students to the community. Why study Spanish? Spanish is a vital and vibrant language in world communication, business, e-commerce, politics, and culture. Some 480 million people speak Spanish as a first language. During the decade between 1980 and 1990 there was an increase of 50% in the number of Spanish speaking people in the United States. Spanish is now the most spoken language after English in this country. It is also the second most used language on the Web. Spanish is gaining more recognition in the academic world as an independent and promising major for students from all backgrounds.
