2014-2015 GRADUATE Catalog

Graduate Catalog Home


Welcome to the Johnson State College Online Graduate Catalog. This catalog takes effect August 1, 2014, and remains in effect until superseded by a new issue.

The JSC Graduate Catalog is the official source of information about Johnson State College graduate academic programs, courses, policies and procedures. It should be used as a guide in planning a course of study and meeting graduation requirements. This catalog should not be regarded as a contract between students and Johnson State College, as JSC reserves the right to make changes in course offerings, degree requirements, charges, regulations and procedures as educational and financial considerations require.

Course offerings and requirements are continually examined and revised, and not all courses in this catalog are offered every semester. JSC publishes a Course Bulletin each semester listing the courses to be offered that semester, along with times, locations and other pertinent information. Because changes may occur after the Bulletin is published, students are advised to check “Search for Course Sections” on the MyJSC Portal for the most up-to-date information.

The JSC catalog is published annually by the Office of the Academic Dean. The online catalog contains a number of features to assist users, including advanced search options, intuitive navigation and a personal “Favorites” folder where you can store favorite programs and courses. 

The graduate programs at Johnson offer rigor and flexibility to help you advance professionally and personally, faculty members who take a personal interest in your success, and the opportunity to explore your interests, examine your values and shape the future direction your life will take. We are proud to offer three respected graduate programs, each of which offers a variety of tracks in which to specialize:

  • M.A. in Counseling
  • M.A. in Education
  • M.F.A. in Studio Art 

To view the JSC Undergraduate Catalog, select that option from the drop-down menu at upper right. For earlier versions of either the graduate or undergraduate catalogs, email the Office of the Registrar or call 802-635-1677.

The JSC Mission

Johnson State College believes in the power of higher education to transform lives. We express this commitment through an education that crosses academic and other boundaries everywhere possible; creates opportunities for students to extend their classroom learning to the field, the laboratory, the studio, the community and the local and wider world; recognizes the diverse starting points and goals of students; and sustains active participation, high standards, vigorous debate and mutual respect.


Johnson State College is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges and the Vermont Department of Education. For inquiries regarding NEASC accreditation, you may contact the NEASC Commission on Institutions of Higher Education by email or call 855-886-3272 toll free.
