Your Champlain Game Programming education will provide you with great depth of knowledge and skills that will give you flexibility in an ever-changing industry. Because you begin taking Game Programming classes starting in your first semester, you'll be qualified sooner for internships than students at other similar programs.
Champlain Game Programming students can build remarkable résumés through our extensive game internship opportunities. Recent internship locations for Game Programming majors include Behaviour Interactive, Competitive Computing, iD Tech Camps, and Moment Factory.
Additionally, students can apply for paid internship positions at Champlain College's Emergent Media Center (EMC). At the EMC, you can be part of a team that uses game technologies and emergent media to integrate art and code with cultural awareness, creativity, and communication on real-world projects.
We want you to be well prepared for your first internship, externship, or other 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.
