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 management information systems (MIS) bachelor's program is 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; ENGL 315, Writing in the Workplace, where you will learn not simply how to craft a better essay, but also how to be more effective in your written communication on the job; or SDEV 230, Information Systems Analysis & Design, where you walk away with a comprehensive, balanced, and up-to-date perspective of systems analysis and design, you will take courses that are focused, relevant, and delivered in an accelerated 7-week format.
