School Description

Founded by Edmundites, who came to Vermont from France via Canada, Saint Michael’s College is rooted in the concepts of world education, justice, and service. St. Edmund, himself, was the first rector of Oxford University in Great Britain. In 1954, our Applied Linguistics Department was founded when Hungarian students arrived to study English. Since then, more than 20,000 international students from over 120 countries have made our campus their home while earning a degree, improving their English, or experiencing a semester or two of study abroad.

Our 1,900 undergraduates choose from 36 majors and many additional opportunities for student research, internships, honors programs, and study abroad. Our home is the great college town of Burlington, Vermont, which is also the safest, and healthiest state in the USA. We are near excellent skiing, hiking, mountain climbing, biking, and sailing, and 2-3 hours from Montreal and Boston. St. Mike’s promises quick admission decisions and credit with merit scholarships.
