Physics (BA) | Bachelor’s Degree

Physicists are problem solvers. The analytical skills they learn make them versatile and adaptable. The undergraduate physics program at UVM will provide you with a deep foundation of knowledge and practical experience which will prepare you for any field.

Our physics department offers both a bachelor of science (B.S.) and a bachelor of arts (B.A.) degree. Both degree options allow you to pursue graduate studies or work in industry. The B.A. degree has a more traditional physics focus which can serve as a foundation for careers in physics, research, engineering, law, medicine, business, technical writing, and teaching. Students in the B.A. program take fewer required math and physics courses and have a broader choice of electives.

Plant Biology | Bachelor’s Degree

Plant biology is key to the future prosperity of the human population. In the same way that basic medical researchers seek clinical solutions to fundamental challenges in human health care, as plant biologists we seek to provide the insights that make it possible to feed, clothe, and shelter our ever-larger population in spite of intensifying environmental concerns, especially climate change. Today’s students will make decisions critical to the future of our species, which must be informed by our insights into plants, the source of all sustenance.

Political Science | Bachelor’s Degree

Political science can be summed up as the study of power: how power is aggregated and exercised.

Political scientists examine the process of group decision-making and ethical implications, leading us to consider concepts of community, identity, justice and citizenship. In the American politics field, our department offers courses on the presidency, Congress, the courts, media and politics, parties and elections, constitutional law, civil rights, gender issues, women in politics and political leadership. Students can take courses in ancient, medieval and modern political theory as well as theory courses organized around themes like global justice, ethics, citizenship and religion and the state.

Psychological Science (BS) | Bachelor’s Degree

The Department of Psychological Science at UVM offers both a bachelor of arts (B.A.) degree and a bachelor of science (B.S.) degree. Which option you choose will depend on your specific interests and whether you are more comfortable with arts, humanities, social sciences, and languages or with natural sciences and mathematics. If you plan on pursuing graduate studies in psychology or a related field, the B.S. option may be best for you. This program places a stronger emphasis on math, science and lab courses, leading to careers in research, academics, medicine or neuroscience.

Public Health Sciences | Bachelor’s Degree

UVM’s Public Health Sciences program will help you develop an in-depth understanding of health issues faced by individuals and communities and be prepared to define, assess, and address health concerns through the lens of public health.

As a graduate of UVM’s Public Health Sciences program, you will be prepared for careers in health promotion and education, global health, epidemiology, health communication, and health care systems, as well as for further education in health professions.

Religion | Bachelor’s Degree

The study of religion is a crucial part of the wider study of human cultures, global affairs, and personal identities. Contemporary society in the U.S. is increasingly shaped by diverse and conflictual religious claims, even as the great majority of public high schools provide their graduates with little if any introduction to the formal study of religion.

In the Religion Department we use multiple secular approaches to explore the vast array of myths, rituals, ethical systems, and social formations that human beings have created in response to what they perceive to be powers beyond the human. Our students receive extensive personal attention in our small classes as they gain religious literacy and develop a critical understanding of the role of religion in the world, an essential preparation for global citizenship today.

Russian | Bachelor’s Degree

Students of Russian at UVM pursue courses in Russian language, literature, and culture over four years of campus study. UVM’s German and Russian Department boasts an outstanding teaching reputation and a dedication to scholarship, as measured by numerous publications and teaching awards.

Areas of faculty expertise include Russian phonology and lexicology; Russian news media; 19th and 20th century Russian literature; specialized courses on Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, Gogol, Pasternak, Bulgakov, Nabokov, and Solzhenitsyn, as well as more general 19th- and 20th-century survey courses.

Secondary Education | Bachelor’s Degree

UVM’s Secondary Education program provides supportive and rigorous learning experiences preparing aspiring educators for immediate success in middle and high school settings.

Learn to develop engaging and relevant curriculum, value and respect the uniqueness of students and their families, and utilze assessment data to tailor student learning.

Learn by doing with at least four community-based field experiences in a variety of school settings (rural, suburban, and inner-city) with ongoing support and mentoring from our faculty advisors. It all leads up to your senior year when you complete a full semester teaching internship fully immersed in the school culture, teaching classes, collaborating with school professionals, participating in professional development, and attending or leading extra-curricular activities.

UVM’s nationally accredited teacher education programs enjoy reciprocity with many other states and provinces, so you will be prepared to teach almost anywhere.

Self-Designed (CALS) | Bachelor’s Degree

The College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) offers each undergraduate student the opportunity to define a personalized program of study. This curriculum is entitled the “Self-Designed Major” program of study. When a student determines that their personal educational objectives fall either outside or between the curricula defined by departments and programs of the College, the student may wish to consider designing a Self-Designed Major.
