Academic Calendar: Semester

State: Vermont

Description

Burlington College is a relatively young college -- it was founded in 1972 as the Vermont Institute of Community Involvement. From its first days, the school's curriculum has integrated course work with community engagement. The school defines itself as a "nontraditional liberal arts institution." The phrase has a couple meanings. For one, the college caters to both traditional college-age students and adults who are returning to school. But what really stands out at Burlington College is the school's interdisciplinary and hands-on approach to learning. Most of the college's majors cannot be contained within narrow disciplinary boundaries, and a significant number of students design their own programs of study. The college's Institute for Civic Engagement helps students connect their academic work with the issues facing the world outside the college. Seniors at Burlington complete a "Degree Project," a two-semester independent project that synthesizes students' interests and learning. The individualized nature of Burlington's curriculum is supported by a 5 to 1 student / faculty ratio. The majority of Burlington College faculty members are active professionals in the area who teach at the college part-time. Despite the college's tiny size, students have no trouble finding lots to do. Downtown Burlington is a short walk away, and students also have easy access to the recreational opportunities along the Lake Champlain waterfront. Champlain College and the University of Vermont are a little over a mile away.

Description

Champlain College is not your typical small private college. When you look at some of the majors that Champlain offers -- like game design and radiography -- you'll see why. The college does have a liberal arts foundation, but the curriculum is designed to have specific and sometimes niche applications in the world. Students are encouraged to explore their major from the first year, gain practical knowledge, and develop conceptual and critical thinking skills. Students can even bring their own business to college as part of the BYOBiz program and receive course work and mentoring to help with their business goals.
