Game Sound Design Major Curriculum

Champlain's unique Game Sound Design major gets you started in audio production on day one. Through our Upside-Down Curriculum, you get to build four years of experience: in the sound studio, working on teams, and immersed in game development.

The curriculum accomodates a semester studying abroad in your third year. It's a perfect way to gather inspiration from the sounds, dialects, and auditory environment of another country! Your advisors will help you plan your courses so that credits earned abroad fulfill requirements in your major.
