The Middlebury experience extends far beyond its main campus in central Vermont.
Students, faculty and visiting scholars come here from dozens of countries and many take advantage of the multitude of international opportunities we provide.
The Rohatyn Center for Global Affairs is a hub of global activity. Students can choose from two popular undergraduate programs — International and Global Studies and International Politics and Economics — or integrate an international focus into the traditional academic departments.
International students make up more than 10% of the undergraduate population. International Student & Scholar Services (ISSS) makes it possible for our international faculty, staff and students to work or study in Middlebury's many programs. ISSS provides support to our international population during their transitions to and from campus as well as throughout their programs.
In summer, the internationally recognized Language Schools transform the campus into an immense multilingual community. Languages of study include Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.
Undergraduates can study these same 10 languages during the academic year, and also take advantage of Middlebury's C.V. Starr Schools Abroad, located in 16 countries and 37 cities. Students abroad immerse themselves in a country’s culture, living, learning and completing their entire curriculum in the language of their host country. Undergraduates can pursue study abroad opportunities in other high quality programs and universities as well, and Middlebury also provides graduate study options abroad.
The Monterey Institute of International Studies (MIIS), which became a graduate school of Middlebury College in July 2010, offers graduate programs in international policy and management, and translation, interpretation, and language education along with a wide range of options for learning English and other languages. Middlebury undergraduates have a number of opportunities to study away at the Monterey Institute, and may enroll in an integrated degree to earn both a BA and an MA in five years.
One of our most recent initiatives is the Middlebury-Monterey Language Academy, which offers full-immersion language study to students in grades 7-12.
