Another distinguishing aspect of the MFA program is our location - Burlington, Vermont - a place offering unmatched quality of life and plentiful opportunities. We're set between Boston and Montreal, two of North America's most important cities when it comes to emergent media, and home to companies such as Ideo, Ubisoft, Behaviour Interactive, Eidos and Electronic Arts. Burlington itself has become a center for emergent media in its own right, with organizations like Polhemus, Ascension Technology, JDK Design, Tag New Media, MyWebGrocer, Dealer.com, Resolution Inc. and Vermont Film Commission providing ample extension opportunities. In addition, both the state of Vermont and Champlain College have long fostered an entrepreneurial culture, characteristics that are integral to this field. Upon completion of this program, students will have not only improved their core skills, they will have developed the expertise and intellectual agility needed to understand and master all the pieces to the puzzle.
As a Champlain College student, you will be minutes away from:
Church Street Marketplace
The epicenter of the city is a four-block, cobblestoned, outdoor marketplace cordoned off exclusively for pedestrians. The place hops. Street performers, cart vendors and outdoor eatery seating enliven the well-balanced distribution of national storefronts (like Macy's, Banana Republic and Urban Outfitters) among an eclectic roster of locally owned shops.
Perfect College Town
As well as being home to the approximately 24-acre Champlain College campus, Burlington boasts three other colleges and one major university research hospital; students represent a full one-fourth of Burlington's total population. Champlain and other local colleges offer a full calendar of open-to-the-public cultural events, concerts, lecture series and sporting events.
Burlington is such a distinctive city, it shows up in the top of many "best" lists year after year, including:
Housing Options in Burlington
Burlington is widely considered one of the most livable cities in the country. As a college town, there are an abundance of rental opportunities and nearly everything is within walking distance. Even so, mass transportation is readily available throughout the city and your student ID will get you where you need to go - free.
Champlain now has dedicated apartment-style housing available to MFA students. To learn about housing options, contact Marissa George at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at (802) 383-6601 to help:
