School of the Environment – Applications Open!
Does your college-age son or daughter need something to do this summer? Did you know the Middlebury School of the Environment is open to him or her? Your student can earn 9 credit hours in six short weeks, and this year, there is an option to live off-campus*.
The School of the Environment is open to any college undergraduate and no previous college-level coursework in environmental studies is necessary. Applications are open for admissions and financial aid, and need-based grants are available.
Students enrolling in the session (June 24 to August 5, 2016) will take three integrated courses: two core courses (a project-based practicum and one that provides an interdisciplinary perspective on a complex issue) and an elective. The three courses will share connecting themes, tools, strategies and faculty, as well as mentors, visiting scholars and practitioners. An emphasis will be on linking skills associated with leadership and innovative problem-solving with a solid grounding in the principles and concepts of environmental studies.
*All students are required to pay for and eat lunch in the dining hall as required meetings and work take place over the lunch hour.
