Green Mountain College is a great school to pursue a graduate degree. The programs are holistic in nature, and the professors are very involved and interested in your success as a student. Your cohort of students will be small, intimate and highly productive. The skills you learn in this program are readily applicable to your work as a professional. Studying online makes it possible to attain a graduate degree and continue to work as much as needed. This adds value to your degree, as you can leverage your job to apply further and understand the concepts that you are learning in the program. I highly recommend Green Mountain College for anyone who is interested in attaining a graduate degree to launch their career to the next level.

From the first moment I expressed interest in furthering my education through Green Mountain College they have been extraordinarily helpful and enthusiastic about my passions and future goals. I have received excellent assistance with evaluating my options and preparation to begin my online attendance at Green Mountain College. I know that no matter how many challenges may arise, they will have my back and provide me with every ounce of help they can offer.

Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2016

I chose an online graduate program because I wanted to continue working full time. I know that it seems ironic to study the environment solely through the computer, but the program is uniquely designed to get you out into your community, and allow you to focus on your own eco-region. It's the only program of it's kind. The rolling 6-week class schedule is perfect for scheduling school around busy lives. Academic-wise, it depends on the concentration you decide on, and which classes you take. As a career changer (I came from a background of English and International Relations) I found a balance between very challenging courses, and courses where my background knowledge aided me in making it less challenging. Overall, I enjoyed the projects - from sending dried plants I collected through the mail, to recording video of my field explorations, to writing extensively about a species of my choosing. I would definitely recommend this program to people all around the country - and world - looking to have a similar experience. Discussions are engaging and educational, and professors are flexible. Best of luck!

Wonderful program in sustainability. One of the most practical and well rounded educations in agricultural topics that I've ever seen, especially in an online forum. The program is very down to earth.

Definitely a competitive program! As nearly the only one of its kind, this is a perfect opportunity for me to work full time while earning a reputable Master's degree online. It's a great deal of work, but I've learned a lot and have been successful.
