Science and mathematics are a vital and dynamic part of Middlebury’s liberal arts curriculum.

Science and Mathematics at Middlebury

Coming soon.

Students who want the best in STEM education will find it here, as well as a holistic education that fosters a deep and integrative approach to any field of study they choose. Middlebury’s science and math departments blend the high-tech facilities and cutting-edge research typically associated with larger universities with the collaborative learning atmosphere of a liberal arts college. With 11 departments and programs focused on math and both the physical and life sciences, Middlebury not only has a broad range of ways to study the sciences, it gives students the freedom to explore them all.

  • Lunch with Nick Engelfried

    Join us for a casual, informal lunch conversation and networking with Nick Engelfried, author of “Movement Makers: How Young Activists Upended the Politics of Climate Change,” will share insights from investigating the dramatic rise of youth-led climate activism. Over the course of two decades, young people have propelled the climate crisis into the political spotlight, with Middlebury College playing a key role. Come learn how lessons gleaned from interviews with over 100 past and current leaders of the movement can inform our work fighting for a livable planet today.

  • College Lands Master Plan Listening Session

    Middlebury College, under the leadership of the College Lands Advisory Committee, is crafting a master plan for the 3,000 acres of college lands in the Champlain Valley, and we are engaging a broad array of thought partners to help envision opportunities. Our public information-gathering will give us a broad view of values that our local communities and citizens perceive for these 3,000 acres. We are also interested in understanding organizational and individual visions and ideas, and look forward to hearing first-hand ideas about these lands.
