Study Abroad

International Study Options for Professional Writing Majors

The most valuable way to develop as a writer is to travel. Every writer needs to explore the unknown, confront his or her own prejudices and assumptions, meet new people, ask questions and gain a richer understanding of the world. When you travel, you never need to look for material: it comes looking for you.

Discover a Whole New World of Professional Writing

As a Professional Writing student, you have the opportunity to study in one of UNESCO's seven Cities of Literature at the Champlain Abroad Dublin campus.

  • Take courses like Writing the City: Dublin, The Dublin Literary Experience, and Advanced Seminar in Literature: The Hidden Histories in Contemporary Irish Literature
  • Read the works from the country's most influential writers: James Joyce, Seamus Heaney, William Butler Yeats, Samuel Beckett and more
  • Expand your writing through your Dublin encounters

Or maybe you want the luxury of studying abroad in a foreign country while still being close to home. As a Professional Writing major, you can study at Champlain Abroad's Montreal campus.

  • Write about your explorations through this mosaiculture of a city
  • Study short stories, novels, plays and poetry from some of Canada's best authors
  • Take courses like Writing the City: Montreal, Food Writing in Montreal, Technical Writing and the Canadian Literary Experience
  • Get involved in Montreal's lively theater and comedy culture

Or maybe you want to study abroad elsewhere. Studying abroad is built into the Professional Writing program during your junior year, and Champlain's Office of International Education will help you find the perfect place for you.

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.
