With curriculum that is built on a framework of social, economic, and environmental sustainability, you will learn not only the practical skills you need for the workplace, but also how to live a purposeful life. 95 percent of graduates say they are doing work that they find meaningful. They are prepared for careers in today’s fastest-growing fields, including the green jobs sector. Our graduates do what they love, and the rewards follow.
At Green Mountain College, we blend the best of classroom theory with practical, hands-on experience. The result is a deeper kind of learning that gives you a leg up in the working world. Students and faculty work together on research projects that have real outcomes, like our design/build class, which built a solar garage that charges an electric tractor for use on the farm. Every student gets to vote on the next sustainability ideas to be implemented at the college. And, you’ll have opportunities for fieldwork at our student-run farm, an great internship sites like Greenpeace, Killington Ski Resort or the Office of Senator Bernie Sanders. It’s your world—and it’s “the real world,” long before you graduate.
Here, the classroom is more than a place to sit and take notes. It’s where you connect, engage, and collaborate with the world’s foremost sustainability experts—your professors. Beyond the classroom, you can expect to work and learn one on one with faculty. They get to know you here, and many become mentors for life. As you hone into your major and prepare for your future career, our Career, Advising and Teaching (CAT) Center will support you with internships, resume building support and practice with interviews.
The College has a well-deserved reputation as a leader in sustainability. When you become part of Green Mountain College, you join a legacy of achievement in sustainability studies and practices.
