Some students selected for this program choose to study abroad either the spring semester prior to, or fall semester following the Freeman summer internship program.

Third Party Providers

Champlain also offers students the option to study abroad through pre-approved Third Party Providers. Past Champlain students who have found a program that meets both major and program requirements have studied in locations such as France, India, Sweden, Costa Rica and Australia. Approved Third Party Providers include:

Explore the Global Marketplace

"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.

A World of Options:

  • Champlain College's Dublin Campus attracts students from diverse majors and is the ideal starting point for further exploration of Ireland, Europe and points beyond.

  • Montreal, home to another Champlain Campus, is ranked as one of the world's "hippest" cities by the New York Times. Our program is known for cutting-edge academics and internship placements in a city famous for its innovative economy.

  • Champlain has developed a Global Partners Program, offering study-abroad sites in Auckland, New Zealand; Buenos Aires, Argentina; Florence, Italy; Ifrane, Morocco and Shanghai, China.

  • Our third-party partner programs take Champlain students as far afield as Mumbai, India; Capetown, South Africa; Innsbruck, Austria; Wellington, New Zealand; London, England; Gold Coast, Australia and many more.
