Need additional information?

Each of the individual graduate programs has contact information, and in response to a call or e-mail message request, the contact person will provide you with catalogs and program information. If you are having trouble deciding among the programs, contact the Graduate College for further assistance.

Interested in Financial Support?

Many of the graduate programs support students through graduate teaching assistantships and grant-supported research assistantships. The Graduate Program Directors of the individual programs can provide you with more specific information.

Interested in Teaching?

The departments of the College of Arts and Sciences are dedicated to excellence in teaching as well to excellence in scholarship. In collaboration with the UVM Teaching and Learning Center, the College provides teaching orientation and training for new graduate students and individual advisors serve as teaching mentors for Graduate Teaching Assistants. You will find that each department has a special support structure for graduate students who teach.

We encourage our graduate students to present their scholarship at national and international meetings. Matching funds for travel and the Suiter Prizes, a special series of travel awards, support graduate student travel.

Interested in Housing for Graduate Students?

Please contact Residential Life about off-campus UVM housing. Many students live off campus since the campus is located within the City of Burlington, and there is good mass transit to the campus.

There are many more aspects of UVM that will interest you as an applicant to one of our many graduate programs. We encourage you to explore the UVM web site for information about our libraries, special research facilities, exercise and sports facilities, and more.

A last word: You will find that our graduate faculty members are world-class scholars, who are dedicated to graduate education. Please surf our web sites and become acquainted with these fine scholars and the excellent graduate programs, research facilities and opportunities that are available to you.
