Experiential learning is an important part of your education at Green Mountain College.
As an undergraduate, you’ll gain real-world experience through independent study projects and internships before you graduate, helping you get a fulfilling job or preparing you for grad school. Graduate students gain an important career credential and join a growing community of national and international sustainability experts.
Our alumni are making game-changing contributions to their organizations and communities. They seek opportunities to solve problems in creative ways, and they’re not afraid to take on tough challenges. A GMC degree tells employers you are prepared for the challenges of today’s rapidly changing workplace with adaptability, creativity, and the ability to assimilate new information quickly.
Graduate School Admissions
Undergraduate alumni attend graduate and professional degree programs at leading institutions including New York University, Princeton University, Cornell University, Columbia University, Stanford University, Vermont Law School and McGill University in Canada.
The teacher education program prepares students to take licensure exams. 100% of our education majors who take the Praxis I and II exams achieved a passing grade.
Career Placement & Satisfaction
Every year we survey former students who graduated one, three, and ten years earlier to assess their levels of success and satisfaction. Against the backdrop of the current recession, 96% of 2008 graduates were employed and 95% were satisfied with their jobs one year after leaving GMC. Our Office of Career and Personal Development works closely with every student to help craft a personalized internship and career plan.
