Who We Are

Small College, Gorgeous Setting

Johnson State College, one of five colleges in the Vermont State College system, sits on 350 hilltop acres in the heart of the Green Mountains. Our academic offerings span 30 bachelor's, three master's, three associate's, one certificate and 10 teacher licensure programs. Enrollment for the 2012-13 academic year numbered 1,803 students.

Science professor Elizabeth Dolci works with her students as they investigate chemical reactions.

A Long History of Educating

Johnson State first made its name in preparing public school teachers. In the mid-1800s, our students came from local farms and nearby villages to earn their college degrees. The same adventurous spirit distinguishes our students today, though they come here to study not only education but also a variety of other liberal arts subjects.

A Close-Knit Community

Johnson State's small size promotes close student-faculty relationships, creating many opportunities for you to travel, go to professional meetings and/or conduct research with your professors. Meanwhile, our belief in learning by doing encourages you to translate theory into practice in the lab, K-12 classroom, art studio and beyond.

Preparing Graduates for Careers and Civic Engagement

When you graduate from Johnson State, you will leave with more than a degree. You will also possess the skills, knowledge and understanding that form the basis for career success, civic involvement and a lifelong love of learning.
