Our Admissions team will put you in touch with the faculty member who can best answer your question.
We highly encourage and support our Management of Creative Media Majors 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.
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. Many of the Management of Creative Media students opt to study abroad for the whole year, spending a semester at each international academic center.
Students with the Game Management specialization often study abroad in Montreal during the spring with the rest of their Game Cohort, and intern at one of the many game studios during their semester abroad.
Thanks to the Freeman Foundation, many of our Management of Creative Media students have also had the opportunity to study abroad and complete internships in Shanghai, China over the summer.
Working closely with your Faculty Advisor, 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 Management of Creative Media 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.
