Computer Science & Innovation Major Curriculum

The computing field is constantly changing—innovations are developing on a daily basis. By jumping into your major courses right away, you learn about trending technologies throughout your four years at Champlain and practice staying ahead of the game. Because of the early experience gained through our Upside-Down Curriculum, many students have multiple internships and relevant part-time employment opportunities before they graduate.

Champlain's study abroad program is a great opportunity to gain a global perspective. Our Computer Science & Innovation faculty designed the curriculum so you can take a semester, or even a full year, studying abroad and still earn the credits needed for your major.
