An Education for Life
We offer 29 majors - each grounded in our liberal studies core. What does that mean? It means that students are going to learn a whole lot about the world, past, present and future. They’ll learn things they’ll need four years from now, and things they’ll recall 20 years from now. They’ll learn to read, write, solve problems, and think for themselves, while not forgetting about others.

Every course is taught by a professor, not a graduate assistant. Our student-faculty ratio is just 12:1, and that means students get personal attention in class and out of class. Our professors challensaint_michael_s_college2.jpgge their students, but are known for helping them to reach those challenges too.

In Service to the World
Service to the community and to all humankind is a vibrant part of student life, reflecting the heritage of service of the Edmundite priests who founded Saint Michael’s. More than 70% of Saint Mike’s students join in service projects through Mobilization of Volunteer Efforts (MOVE), reflecting a unique passion for social justice issues on campus. And students can find spiritual engagement through the extensive programming offered by the Office of Edmundite Campus Ministry.

An Unsurpassed Vermont Location
Situated just outside of Burlington, Vermont’s largest city, the area attracts 14,000 students enrolled in five local colleges and universities. In addition to the shops, restaurants and cafes of the Church Street Marketplasaint_michael_s_college3.jpgce and a lively local music scene, Burlington offers great opportunities for hands-on learning through internships. Vermont, known for its natural beauty, environmentalism and year-round recreational activities, inspires many students to take advantage of some of the best skiing in the East.
