Why should I apply undeclared in Information Technology & Sciences?

No matter what you choose as your major in the Division of Information Technology & Sciences, you’ll develop the skills to advance both technology and humanity. By collaborating with your academic advisor, you’ll be in relevant courses immediately ranging from data analytics and Python programming to transmedia storytelling, and more.

As an Undeclared student in ITS, you’ll be introduced to a broad scope of IT disciplines and narrow your interests. Your dedicated professors and academic advisors will help you quickly discover whether you prefer rigorous programming and technology courses that require a strong aptitude for mathematics, or whether your true passion lies more in front-end aspects of technology.

A lot of students worry about applying to college without declaring a major. But at Champlain, we want each and every student to continually explore options and opportunities—and we’ve created an environment and a culture that doesn’t just support that, it encourages it. If you have a general idea of what you’d like to study in the ITS division, but don’t know which major would be the best choice, we encourage you to apply Undeclared.

Why Champlain College?

Community Connection

At Champlain, casual conversations turn into life-changing, career-determining events. Your connections and relationship will run deep, thanks to our small average class size of 15 and student/faculty ratio of 11:1.

Try Things Out

Our experiential learning means doing and learning go hands-in-hand. The Upside-Down Curriculum allows you to take a semester or two to explore academic options in several majors and still graduate on time. We want you to love what you learn, and we don’t believe in making you wait to know for sure.

Carve Out Your Career

Meet your career advisor for all your job and internship needs. They’ll discuss your strengths and interests, conduct a series of assessments to help evaluate your personal preferences, and match you with opportunities that best suit your interests.

Support From the Start

Help will always be given to those who ask for it—but at Champlain, we try to make it as easy as possible for you to get the assistance you need, on your own terms. Between your professors, career advisors, and peer advisors to your academic advisors and your residence hall advisor, someone is always looking out for you. (And saying “Hi” to you in the hallway.)

It just made sense to go here. There’s so much support from the faculty, the class sizes are small, and I knew if I didn’t like Cybersecurity, I could just change my major because I’m getting the Upside-Down Curriculum and I’ll know right away if it’s for me.
