We highly encourage and support our Broadcast Media Production majors to take a semester of international study. It's an incredibly valuable learning experience. Pulled out of your comfort zone, you will come to appreciate the nuances of other cultures and how critical it is to be sensitive to them no matter where you are in the world. Through study abroad, you'll also become a more nuanced producer of multimedia based on your exposure to an international array of media options, an important skill for a Broadcast Media Production professional.
You have the option to study abroad at one of the Champlain Abroad campuses during your junior year, in either Montreal, Canada or Dublin, Ireland. In Dublin, many students take the Non-Profit and Social Marketing course where they become involved with the nonprofit organization Hireland. In Montreal, students have the opportunity to explore the world of film production through the Montreal Filmmaking Summer Program. Alternatively, you can take a semester studying anywhere in the world through our Global Partners Program or one of our third-party international study partners.
Working closely with your Program Director, you will be able to accommodate a semester abroad, which could potentially include an international internship, while satisfying all of the required coursework for your Broadcast Media Production major.
"Global Appreciation" has emerged as an essential competency employers seek. Champlain has taken a proactive approach to cultivating this competency by ensuring that international learning is embedded in the College's curriculum.
Additionally, Champlain offers opportunities for every student to engage in a study-abroad experience. To that end, we designed the curriculum of our majors to support a semester of international study. What does this mean to you? You can study in another country, even complete an internship, and still graduate on time.
Living and studying in another country will make you a more culturally aware citizen, and an internationally engaged and cross-culturally sensitive professional.
