Because you'll follow a field-relevant curriculum starting in your first semester, you'll be ready for game design internships earlier than your peers at other schools. Your academic experience sets you up to be an excellent intern—and when it's time to launch your career, your impressive internship experience will set you up to be a first-choice candidate for competitive game designer positions.
Game Design majors may work for paid positions in the Emergent Media Center (EMC) as early as their first year at Champlain. The EMC is a collaborative studio/laboratory space where you'll use game technologies and emergent media to integrate art and code with cultural awareness, creativity, and communication on real-world game projects.
We want you to be well prepared for your first internship, externship, or other relevant fieldwork. After your first year of exploratory practical education, you'll be ready to work with your Career Advisor to take the next step.
Local and national employers turn to Champlain for college interns because they are better prepared to work in professional environments than the majority of their peers from other institutions. Many Champlain graduates receive full- and part-time job offers from the organizations where they first took their internships or externships.
