Programs and offices housed in Waterman
This is Waterman Building, home to the president and the provost and a lot of the UVM administrators, as well as College of Education and Social Services. So, majors in that college include elementary, secondary education, pre-K, special education, music, and art education; they have social work and human development and family studies. But the great thing about the education program is that, starting their junior or senior year, students actually get to work in the Vermont school system as teachers. They have to teach four to five classes each semester, come up with what they're going to do that day in class, grade all the assignments, work with the students... So, it's a great learning experience for them; and it also kind of helps them get their foot in their door when they're about to graduate, in terms of job placement.
The Waterman Building is also home to a lot of the language departments on campus, and there are so many that you can take--anywhere from Arabic to Spanish to Italian to Portuguese to American Sign language--which is very popular--to Russian to German to... There are so many different ones. So, if you're really into languages, there are a lot to take.
And Waterman is also home to the Registrar's Office, where you would sign up for classes; Transfer Affairs; and Student Financial Services. So, that's where you want to go if you have any questions about financial aid or transferring credits.
