Students and would be students living in Vermont will most likely have to relocate to obtain a degree or further their education. The state has very few schools that offer coursework in audio engineering.
This may not be such an issue for first time students as it is for those who are currently working in this field. When you relocate, unfortunately you can’t normally take your job with you. Vermont may not be the best state for those looking to further their current degree.
