A global perspective in a small corner of the world.
From its beautiful setting in Vermont's countryside, Green Mountain offers an impressive array of programs aimed at fostering a global outlook. Students have access to some of the biggest cities and the most exotic places in the world. Beyond the pure excitement of traveling, these opportunities bring students face-to-face with issues, cultures, and challenges on an international scale.
Our faculty work together to offer courses overseas, in places like Brazil, China, Italy and New Zealand, and we maintain student-exchange programs with the University of Wales-Aberystwyth, Nagoya University in Japan and South Korea's Hannam University. The college also offers Spanish and French-language immersion programs in Argentina and France, and students can receive Green Mountain credit with institutions such as NOLS (National Outdoor Leadership School), Outward Bound, and Wilderness Education Association courses completed for credit at other schools.
One of our most popular travel opportunities comes through the Eco League, a consortium of five cutting-edge environmentally themed colleges stretching from Maine to Alaska. Students can spend a semester at one of the other four colleges, or participate in a study-abroad program offered by the schools, while paying tuition to and receiving credit from Green Mountain College. So with very little paperwork, and without transferring in or out of other institutions, students have access to travel and study opportunities around the U.S. and the globe.
