Middlebury College's liberal arts curriculum will challenge you for the rest of your life. Four years of intellectual and personal growth prepare students to meet the challenges of responsible citizenship in a complex, changing world.

Our curriculum is designed to ensure that each student's education includes breadth of experience across many fields and disciplines, as well as in-depth study in one area defined by the major. Breadth is achieved through a set of distribution requirements that encompass seven academic categories and four courses in different cultures and civilizations. An emphasis on writing in all disciplines sharpens students' capacity for critical thinking and expression.

An array of interdisciplinary programs provide opportunities to synthesize and connect what you learn in many different departments. Intensive study in the major may culminate in a senior thesis, independent project, or artistic production, working closely with professors in laboratories, studios and classrooms to collaborate on research and creative projects. You'll have a broad range of choices, and a great deal of freedom to set your own academic path.

The Middlebury curriculum will challenge you for the rest of your life. Our students lead rewarding lives of ongoing intellectual and spiritual growth, and they leave Middlebury prepared to meet the challenges of responsible citizenship in a complex, changing world.

Our curriculum is designed to ensure that each student's education includes a certain breadth of experience, as well as in-depth study in one area defined by the major. Curricular breadth is achieved through a set of distribution requirements that encompass seven academic categories, and four courses in different cultures and civilizations. There are also other general requirements—which we see as opportunities—providing the chance to explore new areas of inquiry. In all of these areas, you'll have a broad range of choices, and a great deal of freedom to set your own academic path.
