CURRICULUM

At Champlain College we design our online programs for working adults, and there's nowhere this is more evident than in our curricula. The accounting associate and bachelor's degree programs are comprised of both professional and general education courses that provide foundational knowledge and immediate take-aways that can be applied on the job. 

Whether it's PHIL 201, Critical Thinking, that will help you view the challenges faced by you, your organization, or the society around us differently or MGMT 260, Project Management, where you will understand the principles and practice of what it takes to manage a complex project, you will take courses that are focused, relevant, and delivered in an accelerated 7-week format.  

In addition, we've designed this program so you can earn a certificate in a chosen area of specialization in accounting before you've earned your degree. Talk to your academic advisor for more details.
