Study Abroad

Study Abroad Options in the Filmmaking Major

Working closely with your Program Director, you will be able to spend a semester abroad, potentially completing an international internship, while satisfying all of the requirements for your Filmmaking major.  This incredibly valuable learning experience will help you gain greater appreciation for other culture and will strengthen your filmmaking skills and artistic voice by exposing you to different filmmaking traditions and practices.

Filmmaking students study abroad all over the world, including in our Montreal and Dublin campuses as well as in other cultural centers through our Global Partners Program and third-party options

Our Montreal campus is an ideal location for Filmmaking students, being only two hours away from the Burlington campus. Montreal is a dynamic cultural and media center, home to the production of many Hollywood films and cultural festivals and events. Its thriving and vibrant film industry offers students opportunities to study with film professionals, attend film festivals, and seek internship opportunities.

In addition to spending a semester in Montreal, Filmmaking students can participate in the Montreal Summer Film Program. Live in Montreal for two months, study Urban Indie Filmmaking and earn up to 12 credits.

"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.
