Applications for the Summer 2017 session of the Middlebury School of the Environment (MSoE) are now available. The application process uses the rolling admissions model, so you should hear back fairly quickly on whether or not you’re accepted (their web site promises within 6 weeks of submitting your application).
MSoE is a for-credit summer program that combines coursework in environmental studies with leadership and professional skills training.
The Middlebury School of the Environment is a six-week, integrated program, running from June 23 to August 4, 2017, on Middlebury College’s main campus in Vermont.
The program offers nine semester-hour credits, and financial aid is available.
The curriculum involves two different tracks of study, one on sustainability and understanding place (taught at a more advanced level and intended for students with previous coursework in environmental studies) and one on systems thinking and environmental analysis (taught at a more introductory level).
Each student, regardless of his/her track of study, also enrolls in one of four electives, depending on their interests. The four electives we currently have planned are Environmental Video Production; Wicked Environmental Problems; Environmental Pollution; or Nature, Culture, and Ethics.
The co-curricular program on leadership training focuses on helping students develop the skills they need as professionals to do something effective with the information they learn in their studies. For this, the faculty of the MSoE are joined by leading environmental professionals and experts in a number of skills that will enhance each student’s ability to be successful no matter what choose to do with their college education.
