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.

Media Studies and Digital Arts
Bachelor of Arts (BA)
Saint Michael's College in Colchester, VT
As a Media Studies student, you will learn to write quickly, accurately and under deadline pressure. You will learn to conduct research using traditional and electronic sources. You will acquire a deep understanding of the ethical and legal responsibilities associated with being a communicator - whether in the newsroom or the marketplace. And you will develop a mastery of current technologies, including multimedia, digital photography, digital video and digital audio and social media. There are two versions of the Media Studies & Digital Arts major: one with a journalism concentration, and one without. Both versions combine the arts and sciences with hands-on communication skills, critical to our students as they learn to become effective communicators in our Information Age. Working in collaboration with media professionals at media organizations and in corporate and non-profit, media students put theory into practice by producing media in a professional work environment. Possible activites include producing and distributing media, i.e. websites, articles, films, brochures etc. planning and staging media events; researching and evaluating public relations campaigns; and optimization studies. The internship gives students a practical context in which to examine and interpret issues and concepts they have studied in their Media Studies classroom courses. Some of our graduates are employed in newsrooms all over New England and beyond. Many other graduates are working in web design, film production, photojournalism, advertising, public relations, marketing, and politics (one of our graduates is the press secretary for the Senate Judiciary Committee). Some are doing jobs that weren’t even invented a decade ago, like Director of Social Media. Others have gone on to a range of graduate programs: law school, media studies, American studies, and other fields.

Mechanical Engineering
Bachelor of Science (BS)
University of Vermont in Burlington, VT
Mechanical engineering spans the broadest spectrum of engineering activities — from concept and design, through manufacturing and maintenance of all kinds of products and systems. Nearly all objects created by humans have some mechanical engineering input, from a streamlined skateboard to an advanced spacecraft, an artificial heart or a miniature robot. Mechanical engineers design and build machines and devices of all types. The Mechanical Engineering Program provides a modern mechanical engineering education with focus in engineering decision-making; foundations of mathematics, physical science, engineering science and design; and an appreciation of societal impact of engineering practice. The curriculum, which culminates with the senior design project, gives students a background that can be immediately applied to an engineering career or expanded by more advanced education in other engineering or diverse other fields. Many UVM engineering graduates have gone on to pursue advanced degrees in fields such as law, medicine and business administration, as well as more advanced study in engineering. Students choose from four options within the program: general mechanical engineering, manufacturing engineering, biomedical engineering (to develop and apply new technologies in medicine and surgery), and pre-medical engineering (to obtain a BSME degree before going on to medical school). The School also offers graduate programs leading to the Master of Science or the Doctor of Philosophy, as well as an Accelerated Master's Program in which qualified undergraduates may enter the Master’s program at the end of the junior year and work toward both B.S. and M.S. degrees simultaneously. Accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202-4012.

Environmental Science
Master of Science in Environmental Studies (MSES)
Green Mountain College in Poultney, VT
Our distance MSES program is the only one of its kind in the nation, designed to help working professionals develop expertise in environmental issues and put that learning to work in their own communities. At Green Mountain College, we’ve focused on teaching about the environment for two decades. Our distance MSES program, fully accredited by the New England Association of Schools & Colleges (NEASC), is one of the only of its kind in the nation, and is designed to help working professionals develop expertise in environmental issues, then put it to work in their own communities. Unlike other graduate programs, the GMC master’s degree combines the best of online learning with intensive locally applied experience. We call it a bioregional approach to distance education. Rather than learning about environmental studies solely through examples in a textbook, students in each of our courses use their local ecosystems as laboratories in which to experiment with new concepts and skills. Students choose between three concentrations—conservation biology, writing and communication, and self-design—and graduate as experts in the workings of their own bioregions. This emphasis on practical application of knowledge prepares students for professional work, whether they are just launching a career or looking for growth in an established position. Our MSES students graduate with the knowledge and confidence to become leaders. They join a cutting-edge community ready to make a difference. The GMC MSES program requires 36 hours of Green Mountain College graduate credits. All of the courses are three credits and last six weeks. Most of our course sections range from 10-18 students, creating an ideal online learning environment. Typically, students progress through the program one class at a time, sequencing the core requirements prior to the elective options. This serves to lay important foundational perspectives of environmental studies, as well as build relationships within the cohort. Students complete projects and assignments by connecting the program’s teaching with their own real-life experiences, while engaging with colleagues and instructors in asynchronous discussions.

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.
