  • What our students have to say...

    The MMG department at UVM is unlike any other. The hands on, lab-based learning you get is top notch, and the professors are some of the best I've had at UVM. Because this department is small there is an amazing sense of community and support right from the start. The relationships I have developed with the faculty in this program played an integral role in my development not only as a successful student, but as a person. The advising in this department is state of the art. My advisor is my biggest fan, my closest ally, and a great friend, my college experience wouldn't have been the same without her. I couldn't imagine graduating from any other department.
