Start building the skills you'll rely on most throughout your career.

Our faculty work closely with alumni and current game industry employers to make sure our curriculum teaches you all the technical and interpersonal skills you'll need—and it all starts in your very first semester.

The Upside-Down Curriculum allows you to build four full years of relevant experience through practical coursework, meaningful internships, and opportunities to study abroad (and even intern abroad!). You can opt to declare a minor, further personalizing your education to build precisely the future you envision.

Extend your education


A minor is a perfect way to customize your education in preparation for a niche career—or to spend time on an interest outside your major. You can't go wrong with a minor in Data Science, Finance, or UI Design & Implementation. Explore all the minors available at Champlain.


Your concentration allows you to develop specific skills for the particular field you're most interested in. Focusing your education on Business Strategy, Content & Community, or Research & Analytics will give you an advantage in the job market. Learn more about the Game Business & Publishing concentrations.
