About Us

SNHU's School of Education Vermont Campus has a focus on the field. Through our graduate degree programs and the work of our Professional Development Outreach Center, we connect teachers and leaders together in pursuit of excellence within their craft. Our commitment to the Global Educational Community drives us to enable our students to learn more about their own craft through international experiences wherever possible. All of our work advances a constructivist philosophy, which enables educators to use their considerable knowledge and expertise to engage in relevant learning and refine their practice within any endorsement level. Our focus on the field allows our students to connect academic learning to their everyday professional work.

Degree Opportunities

Our graduate programs are delivered 'off-campus' throughout regional graduate sites developed throughout Vermont. Our Master of Education (M.Ed) and Certification of Advanced Graduate Study (C.A.G.S) programs originally began at Trinity College, and are well-known and lauded for their delivery "on location" in school communities, oftentimes in rural settings, recognizing the professional educators working environment as a vital center of learning.

Doctoral cohorts for the Ed.D. in Educational Leadership program are also offered through SNHU's Vermont Campus. Much like the M.Ed and CAGS, courses within this degree program occur off-site in regional cohort models, where area professionals work together over a period of several years. The networking and collegial support of these learning cohorts continues for many years after the Graduate degree is completed.

Graduate classes for all degrees are taught in condensed weekend formats during the school year by Southern New Hampshire University faculty who are state and regional experts, highly known for their expertise in a variety of professional positions in the field of education. Summer classes typically occur in one week timeframes.

Non-Degree Opportunities

Sometimes a degree isn't the right thing. For those occasions, we offer the services of our Professional Development Outreach Center. Our Center Staff assist our partners in creating original undergraduate and graduate coursework to meet unique learning needs where academic credit adds value to learning experience. Courses developed by our partners typically provide undergraduate credit to high school students and school staff members without Bachelor's degrees, as well as graduate credit for professional staff members looking to add to the Bachelor's or Master's degrees they already have.

All courses and degree programs offered through SNHU's School of Education Vermont Campus are accredited by the New England Association for Schools and Colleges (NEASC).
