The University of Vermont's Environmental Program, known nationally for its interdisciplinary approach, serves a wide range of students interested in an equally wide range of environmental issues. Coursework in the Environmental Program, often carried out in far-flung corners of the world, exposes students to world-class faculty in areas ranging from environmental law and policy, climate change ecology, ecological economics, and environmental humanities.
The curriculum combines the perspectives of the natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities from local to global contexts. Working closely with the faculty, students plan an individually designed program of coursework that combines a broad, comprehensive understanding of the environment with depth in a particular area of interest.

Research and Beyond the Classroom
Many students earn credits through internships or projects in the community or beyond; most spend a semester overseas; and all do a nine-credit senior capstone. Vermont's landscape, accessibility, government, and non-profit organizations give students unrivaled chances to engage in research and then develop and promote policy initiatives.
