Because of Champlain's Upside-Down Curriculum, you will already have extensive knowledge of your field at the end of your first year, making you qualified for internships starting before your second year. With such a head start, you'll be able to participate in multiple internships over your time in college, giving you real-world skills and making your résumé stand out to future employers.
This firsthand experience is invaluable—you'll build your confidence, explore your professional interests, and make great connections in the community.
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.
