Green Mountain College Offers Free Online Masters Webinar Series

POULTNEY, VT--(Marketwire - May 18, 2011) - Green Mountain College, a private, liberal arts institution distinguished by a long tradition of environmental commitment and responsibility, will offer a series of free, informative webinars for students interested in the school's online masters programs. Named by Sierra Magazine as the greenest college in the nation, Green Mountain College augmented its undergraduate curriculum in 2006 with the launch of its online masters programs that offer both online MBA programs and masters degrees in Environmental Studies (MSES) and Sustainable Food Systems (MSFS). Green Mountain College's online MBA program is unique in that the principles of sustainable business are woven through every course, while the College's Master of Science programs offer a unique experience combining the best of online learning with intensive, locally applied experience.

"Green Mountain College's Online Mastersin Environmental Studies takes a BioRegional approach to distance learning. Rather than learning about environmental studies solely through examples in a textbook, students in each of our courses use their local ecosystems as laboratories in which to experiment with new concepts and skills."
Dr. James Harding
Green Mountain College MSES Program Director
