Each Champlain College degree is built on a foundation of uncompromising academic excellence. We're committed to teaching that matters and results that work, and this spirit of integrity informs every aspect of our educational experience.
Small class sizes and a 14:1 student/teacher ratio create an intimate learning environment. You'll never join faceless crowds in cavernous lecture halls. Instead, you'll work closely with professors who offer individualized attention and address your personal areas of interest. These relationships often result in exciting internship and employment opportunities supplied by your teachers' connections.

Each is refined annually to assure that it continually reflects the evolving needs of its field and remains focused on today's issues and tomorrow's challenges. Emerging trends in communication technology and industry best practices are constantly integrated into the architecture of each program to keep the fundamentals similarly aligned.
Our Upside Down Curriculum presents courses in your major in your first semester so you can devote four full years to developing the skills and instincts an exceptional career demands.
