What does it mean to be an artist today? How do artists respond to important issues facing society, and what opportunities are there for community engagement? Our distinctive Creative Media major allows you to expand your skill set, develop your own ideas about artistic expression, and push creative boundaries in unprecedented ways.
You will be supported in developing your own distinctive voice as a creative artist.
You'll graduate with a broad portfolio, and you will have built a highly marketable résumé that will help you stand out in this extremely competitive field.
Taught exclusively by experts who have extensive experience and ongoing affiliations with their respective artistic communities, the Creative Media BFA at Champlain College distinguishes itself from other fine art programs in the country with its cross-disciplinary focus, deliberate emphasis on the business aspect of artistic endeavors, and support of courageous innovation.
Cultural and technological shifts in the marketplace have also created the broadest professional spectrum of opportunities for artists than at any point in history. Now, there's a high premium put on those artists who can truly bring something "new" to the table.
Champlain's Creative Media major fills the need for a program that allows art students to creatively explore emerging media forms at the same time they prepare themselves to viably apply their talents and skills to the marketplace. You'll become proficient in multiple disciplines, giving you the ability to fulfill various roles in the creative media industry.
Through our Upside-Down Curriculum, you will take courses relevant to your major during your first year at Champlain, which will encourage you to explore your ideas about art and experiment creatively with different forms of media.
Each Creative Media student tailors their education to suit their interests and goals. You'll choose two out of the following six concentrations—one primary focus and one secondary—to create your program of study.
By the end of your fourth year, your portfolio will contain works that include performances, public art events, drawings, films, musical compositions, poetry, blogs, sculptures, art installations, and other creative work you want to showcase to employers.
Innovative majors + stellar outcomes + stunning campus = the ideal college. This is your moment. Apply today.
