Did you know that your college-age son or daughter could attend the Middlebury School of the Environment this summer and earn 9 credit hours? Need-based grants are available.
The School of the Environment offers an introductory and advanced track. The introductory track is open to any college undergraduate and no previous college-level coursework is necessary. The advanced track is open to rising juniors and seniors from any undergraduate institution who have engaged in some study of the environment and who have completed at least one college-level lab course.
Students enrolling in the session (June 19 to July 31, 2015) will take three integrated courses. Introductory track courses include a systems-thinking practicum, introduction to environmental analysis, and an elective. Advanced track courses include a skills-based sustainability practicum, understanding place, 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.
