Study Abroad — Communication

Want to see the world? Why wait?

Champlain makes it easy to embark on a life-changing semester (or two) in distant areas of the globe. All our majors are designed to accommodate a semester studying in a foreign country. With Champlain Abroad Dublin, Champlain Abroad Montreal, exchange programs, and third-party programs, the possibilities are nearly limitless for exploring unique landscapes and different cultures. 

In addition to taking classes and living in a new place, studying abroad is an opportunity to confront your own assumptions, meet new people, embrace curiosity, and gain a richer understanding of the world by realizing what it means to see from a global perspective. Our Office of International Education will work with you to ensure all credits transfer and fulfill requirements for your major.
