Academic Schools

Find Your Direction

Northern Vermont University's new academic schools will enhance the student experience by increasing student exposure to a broader range and depth of faculty expertise. Cross-campus interactions between students and faculty will provide richer learning opportunities within existing and new degree programs.

With a focus on collaboration and innovation, our academic schools include programs on each campus and offer learning experiences that would not be possible on either campus alone. You'll fulfill your degree requirements on one campus—sometimes with students or faculty from the other campus—while having access to travel opportunities and additional resources that span our campuses in Johnson and Lyndon.
