Undergraduates at Bread Loaf

The Middlebury Bread Loaf School of English is a summer graduate school that brings together more than 425 students at our three campuses each summer.

Rising undergraduate seniors may attend Bread Loaf in the summer prior to their senior year. We accept applications from undergraduates who will have completed the equivalent of three years towards a bachelor's degree by the summer they wish to attend.

These undergraduate students may apply credit earned at Bread Loaf to their undergraduate degrees or get a head start on an MA in English.

Why Bread Loaf?

The Bread Loaf experience, especially for those pursuing a master's degree over four or five summers, is deep, rich, and transformative. Our students participate in an academic program that offers a huge array of courses about literature and language, taught by faculty selected from some of the best-regarded institutions in the US and the UK. Our students and faculty study together, take meals together, and relax together. Many people form the deepest friendships of their lives at Bread Loaf. Take a look at us.
