We highly encourage and support our Computer Information Technology majors to take a semester of international study. It's an incredibly valuable learning experience.
You have the option to study abroad at one of the Champlain Abroad campuses during your junior year, in either Montreal, Canada or Dublin, Ireland. You can continue to take your technical courses, like Global Information Technology & Ethics and Technical Writing, while complementing your studies with global general electives that are regionally specific to your study abroad location. You can also take classes for your minor. Alternatively, you can take a semester studying anywhere in the world through our Global Partners Program or one of our third-party international study partners.
Working closely with your faculty advisor, you will be able to accommodate a semester abroad, which could potentially include an international internship, while satisfying all of the required coursework for your Computer Information Technology major.
"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.
