UVM offers students the ability to pursue degrees at the bachelor, master’s and doctoral level. Founded in 1791, UVM is recognized as one of the original eight public Ivies.

In 1871, UVM accepted two women to the university and in 1875 allowed women to become full members of the prestigious academic honor society Phi Beta Kappa. Additionally, UVM again defied convention by accepting an African American student into the society.
