At Sterling College, we know the most rewarding learning is hands-on learning. Whether offered on campus in a laboratory or seminar room, on the side of a mountain, or in a barn or pasture, classes at Sterling are small and foster experiential learning and deep inquiry through close relationships between faculty and students.
Our surroundings are essential to what we offer—a liberal arts education through the lens of ecology. Whether you choose one of our five established majors or create your own self-designed major, on our 430 acres you will gain insight into theory, integrate research into your studies, and learn how to use tools like a chainsaw, a compass, and a tractor as part of your daily work and study. No matter what, you will need good waterproof boots.
Sterling removes the barriers between living one’s life and learning. If you value environmental stewardship and you want the rigor and challenge of working with both your hands and your mind, then Sterling College is the right place for you.
