This school is a wonderful place for people who either want to easily achieve a four-year degree without going too in depth into any subject, or who want to work incredibly hard to create opportunities for themselves to succeed. The school does not offer a very clear succession of courses, so it can often be hard to determine how to continue in an academic field that interests you. The culture is very unique, many love it, many don't. The only way to find out if it is for you is just to go there.
College of the Atlantic is a revolutionary school with a new approach to education. There's a greater focus on what moves you and how you can integrate your interests. It's Interdisciplinary in Interconnectedness, providing students with a chance to interpret the world around them as they please. Humans, and their developments on the landscape and on the creatures of biology, have become an unstoppable force. This force could use an ecological perspective to acknowledge the Interconnectedness of all happenings and humanly choices.
