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