In rapidly changing times a broad education in the Liberal Arts may be the best possible preparation for the lifetime of learning that characterizes so many professions. Lyndon offers a two-year degree program in General Studies and a four-year degree program in Liberal Studies.
As a Liberal Studies major, students enjoy the full creative scope of the liberal arts and sciences. Rather than focusing on any one field, our scholars design a theme-based program of study that integrates many fields. The major is comprised of primary and secondary focus areas, the latter building upon the former. Students round out their major with electives and general education courses that enhance their major theme of study.
The Interdisciplinary Liberal Studies degree program is geared specifically toward students seeking the Vermont Educator License. Designed to provide content learning for prospective teachers, this major prepares students to take the Praxis I and II tests and to develop a solid knowledge base in areas beyond their selected teaching expertise.
All of Lyndon’s students benefit from a highly personalized educational experience. Colleges boast of treating students as a name, not a number. At Lyndon, teachers know much more than names — they know students as individuals. Our state’s heritage of tolerance and independence, the feeling of caring and safety we associate with small-town life, and the spiritual lift of living and learning in an area of tremendous natural beauty, all add meaning to the Lyndon experience.
