ACADEMICS

Marlboro College’s academic programs reflect the diverse educational needs of undergraduates, graduate students, and working adults. Our programs are designed to honor the values that underlie Marlboro as an institution—respect for the individual, community engagement, critical and creative thinking, and personal accountability—and to help students establish a strong foundation for personal and career fulfillment.

Undergraduate Studies

Marlboro College empowers undergraduate students to create an individualized course of study in collaboration with faculty members. Based on their personal academic interests and goals, students study broadly across disciplines before embarking on a self-designed Plan of Concentration that culminates in a major work of scholarship. This approach allows students to take ownership of and responsibility for the scope and structure of their intellectual exploration.

Graduate and Professional Studies

Designed for working adults, Marlboro College’s master’s and certificate programs blend engaging online study with intentionally small, in-person classes at our graduate campus in Brattleboro. With an emphasis on immediately applicable knowledge and collaborative learning, our project-based curriculum encourages students to apply what they learn in class to their work environments in real time, and to bring lessons learned back to class for the benefit of their peers.
