Art+Design

Passion for creativity and a love of the fine arts is very much a part of the Burlington College culture. Our small college setting in Burlington, Vermont has much to offer our creative arts students in the way of inspiration, exploration and cultural venues. We challenge students to achieve high levels of written, oral, and artistic communication; critical and reflective thinking; creativity; and social, historical, and scientific awareness. Students share responsibility with their teachers and academic advisors for planning and pursuing their studies and evaluating their work.

We help students acquire knowledge and develop skills that will allow them to build meaningful livelihood. We prepare our students to act guided by social consciousness and self-awareness in the local, national, and global communities where they study, work, and live.
