The words “I’m fluent in the Chinese language" will open many doors.

The Chinese program at Norwich has its sights set on the needs of our country’s future. With a population of 1.3 billion and skyrocketing influence in the world’s economic and political stages, China is a vast and diverse world power. There is an urgent need for business people, diplomats and military personnel who understand its language and culture and a wealth of opportunities for graduates who do.

Through dedicated and innovative classroom instruction, study-abroad opportunities and club activities, students become comfortable with the language and develop a nuanced understanding of the Chinese character through history, literature and cultural studies.

THE ATHLETIC TRAINING PROGRAM at Norwich empowers you build the skills and knowledge to make a positive impact on the lives of physically active people.

June 2019: The Athletic Training Program at Norwich University has received institutional approval to offer a Master of Athletic Training professional degree program. Starting fall 2019, all Athletic Training candidates will matriculate as a Health Sciences student in preparation for the Athletic Training graduate program. The Bachelor of Athletic Training will be phased out with the last class graduating in spring 2022. All students currently enrolled in the Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training program will be eligible to sit for the Board of Certification (BOC) exam upon graduation. Current students should reference information on this web page and/or the course catalog for the year they started the Athletic Training Program for information on their degree completion. All prospective Master of Athletic Training students should reference information on the Master of Athletic Training Program page. The program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) and has begun the substantive change process for degree-change approval.

Through classroom and clinical training, you’ll learn by doing and become a highly qualified and multi-skilled healthcare professional. Collaborating with other health and medical professionals, athletic trainers provide preventative services, emergency care, clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention, and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions to athletes and other physically active persons. You will enhance lives.

Year after year, we hear from architects in the field that our graduates are well prepared for the profession, because they have a working understanding of what an integrated design process requires.

Given our intimate scale, the School of Architecture + Art fosters natural and effective mentoring relationships between faculty and students. Courses take a balanced approach to both the art and science of architecture, and we embrace environmental sustainability as part of Vermont’s ethos.

As part of the oldest private military college in the country, we offer a four-year bachelor of science in architectural studies degree (pre-professional); a one-year, NAAB-accredited master of architecture degree (first professional); and two art minors. All are designed for practical people who want to immerse themselves in an experiential academic lifestyle. The School of Architecture + Art is challenging, fun and dedicated to producing architects who will serve the needs of people.

PE is for everyone. Become an expert on the human body as you learn effective teaching and curriculum planning in a rigorous, science-based program.

Our outstanding faculty and challenging study options are two important reasons why Norwich University’s Physical Education Department is one of the best and most highly regarded in the nation and prepares you for many positions in teaching activity and athletics. Post-graduation, Norwich University physical education majors enjoy a job placement rating over 90% across the U.S. If you’re interested in becoming a physical education teacher, coach, fitness trainer or coach, social worker, recreation director, or athletic director, Norwich may be the perfect choice.

Highlights of your education at Norwich include attending PE conventions, presenting at PE conferences, outdoor canoeing field trips, and managing extremely rewarding Special Olympic events.

Competition for the best jobs is tough, and knowledge of financial numbers gives you a distinct advantage.

It is no coincidence that many CEOs begin their careers in accounting. Accounting gives students an in-depth understanding of the internal functions of business that other business people struggle to match.

Your career is our concern. Norwich’s accounting program is designed to give you the analytical and technical skills for positions in public, private, government and non-profit accounting. As an accounting graduate, you'll be better prepared to address the needs of business operations because you will have been educated in both the accounting and functional areas of business.

Accounting majors frequently choose to double-major in management, a path that requires as few as two additional courses.

The Department of Mathematics at Norwich offers students flexibility, hands-on experience, world-class faculty, and extracurricular opportunities matched by few small universities. Our faculty is second-to-none in fostering undergraduate development and has a reputation for superlative research.

As a mathematics major, you can join with our faculty to explore areas in pure and applied mathematics—from cryptology, graph theory, and real analysis to logic, statistical methods, and applications of differential equations. You can also work toward licensure as a secondary mathematics teacher. Or study actuarial science and work toward becoming an actuary. We offer enough electives for you to earn a minor or double major in another field, or to take on an internship.

Once you have mastered the foundations of mathematics, you'll work directly with faculty to design and carry out original research. Many majors go on to publish or present findings at regional or national conferences.

Norwich University's Physics Department is committed to developing the maximum potential of every student majoring in physics.

Physics is a mathematical science and as such is rigorous and demanding. It presents a challenge found in few other disciplines. At Norwich University, the Bachelor of Science in Physics is offered to students desiring an excellent schooling in the fundamentals of physics. The program encompasses a complete curriculum comprised of classical and quantum physics ranging from the properties of particles to the dynamics of the universe. All disciplines in science and engineering turn to physics to address the foundation of their fields.

Hallmarks of a Norwich education include experiential learning and leadership development. The Department of Physics therefore not only accentuates laboratory work but also insists upon peer collaboration throughout the curriculum. Physics majors, having the advantage of a 3-to-1 student-to-faculty ratio, develop close working relationships with their faculty mentors culminating in original research conducted in a faculty laboratory. Physics majors regularly present the results of their research at regional and national conferences. Currently, the research interests of the faculty include particle physics, material science, astrophysics and geophysical fluid dynamics.

Our department is committed to developing the maximum potential of every student majoring in physics. We are devoted to the proposition that when they graduate, physics majors will have a well-founded understanding of the physics that underlies all aspects of the physical universe. An education that ensures our graduates will succeed in a full range of satisfying career opportunities.

Because of its importance to so many fields, physics serves as an ideal springboard for a rich diversity of careers in the sciences, mathematics and engineering. The training necessary to become a physicist develops analytical skills that allow graduates to branch out into a wide variety of technological professions that value the interdisciplinary talent that physicists have in understanding fundamental physical processes through experimentation.

Because it is one of the most challenging programs at any school, including Norwich, the personal reward of a degree in physics is great. The intellectual growth that is realized opens many doors including: pursuit of the Masters and Doctorate degrees leading to an academic position; a career as a research scientist in a laboratory of industry or government; the profession of education in high school; employment as a scientific consultant to lawyers and politicians; or service in technical branches of the military.

Employment in health care is projected to grow nearly 20 percent through 2026, accounting for about 2.4 million new jobs—more than any other occupational group, according to the U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics.
