Dean's welcome

There is a common misconception that the opportunity to get involved in research with faculty only occurs in the laboratory sciences. The College of Arts and Sciences at UVM provides hands-on experience not only in the sciences, but also across the college and within our community. With over 250 research-active faculty; proximity to numerous research facilities, businesses, art galleries, museums, theatres, government, legal, and social service organizations; and the surrounding natural environment, we are able to provide students with abundant opportunities to engage in research, creative activity, service-learning, and internships.

We know you have many choices when deciding where to further your education. Come learn what the College of Arts and Sciences at UVM has to offer.

Best wishes,
