A Champlain College online Integrated Studies degree is for adults who have completed a number of college credits, sometimes in a variety of areas and other times almost enough to have earned an associate degree. This degree provides an option to maximize the number of credits you may transfer in to Champlain College while at the same time fulfilling the requirements for a meaningful area of concentration.
Time and again studies show that individuals with a college degree have more opportunities and jobs with higher wages and better benefits than those with less than a college education. In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Education individuals with a bachelor's degree earned: 28% more than those with an associate's degree, 53% more than those with only a high school diploma and 96% more than young adults who did not earn a high school diploma.
