Discover the Vermont Studies MinorThe Vermont Studies Minor is part of the Global and Regional Studies Program in the College of Arts and Sciences. It is administered by the Center for Research on Vermont.
What is the Vermont Studies Minor?Vermont Studies is an interdisciplinary minor that integrates Vermont-related course taught throughout the university. Vermont lends itself to study because it is a small state-a living laboratory for investigations into fields of all kinds. Students can examine Vermont as a microcosm of the world at large through humanities, social sciences, the natural sciences, or the environment. At the same time, students develop and refine skills that help them interpret Vermont data and phenomenon and apply them both inside and outside the state.
Our faculty are members of departments and colleges across the University including: Community Development and Applied Economics, History, Natural Resources, Environmental Studies, Political Science, Geography, Social Work, and the College of Agriculture.
