Sierra Nevada College (Incline Village, NV) uses its spectacular mountain location, 35 miles from Reno, to the fullest. A nearby alpine meadow or mountain peak provides the sort of hands-on experience students at other schools can only read about.
A four-year private liberal arts college, SNC boasts a unique entrepreneurial spirit throughout the curriculum, with opportunities for study in more than 30 majors, minors and concentrations. The ski resort management, entertainment technology and entrepreneurship programs are distinctive. Our new Tahoe Center for Environmental Sciences (shared with U.C. Davis) affords even more opportunities for learning.
SNC students hail from across the U.S. and the world, drawn by our educational offerings and recreational opportunities. Students can choose from 10 skiing/snowboarding resorts within a 45-minute drive. With ski lodge-inspired architecture and dorms that would put some hotels to shame, our campus projects an inviting space in which students make friendships that last a lifetime. Sierra Nevada also offers a Master of Arts degree in Teaching, a Master of Education in advanced teaching and leadership programs.
