Your education extends beyond the classroom through community engagement, internships, career planning, and education-driven trips that have the potential to take you across New England or around the world.
A trademark of a Castleton education is collaborative student-faculty research in many disciplines. From digital video documentaries to mathematical models of societal change, the spirit of inquiry permeates our campus.
