Study Abroad — Creative Media

Want to see the world? Why wait?

At Champlain, it's never been easier to embark on a life-changing semester (or two) in remote corners of the globe. All our majors are designed to accommodate a semester studying in a foreign country, and with Champlain Dublin, Champlain Montreal and third-party programs, the possibilities are many for you to explore unique landscapes and exotic 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 through truly 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. Plus, as you can see below, our Champlain Dublin and Montreal programs allow a seamless transition thanks to built-in curriculums for major-specific classes.

Third-Party Providers

Past Champlain students who have found a program that meets both major and program requirements have studied in locations such as France, India, Sweden, Costa Rica and Australia. Approved third-party providers include:

Explore the Global Marketplace

"Global Appreciation" has emerged as an essential competency employers seek. Champlain has taken a proactive approach to cultivating this competency by ensuring that international learning is embedded in the College's curriculum.

Additionally, Champlain offers opportunities for every student to engage in a study-abroad experience. To that end, we designed the curriculum of our majors to support a semester of international study. What does this mean to you? You can study in another country, even complete an internship, and still graduate on time.

Living and studying in another country will make you a more culturally aware citizen, and an internationally engaged and cross-culturally sensitive professional.

A World of Options:

    • Champlain College's Dublin Campus attracts students from diverse majors and is the ideal starting point for further exploration of Ireland, Europe and points beyond.

    • Montreal, home to another Champlain Campus, is ranked as one of the world's "hippest" cities by the New York Times. Our program is known for cutting-edge academics and internship placements in a city famous for its innovative economy.

    • In addition to our own Champlain Abroad program, students have the following choices available to them:

      • Third-Party Study Abroad: Champlain's Office of International Education will help you through the steps to study in the location you want.
      • International Internships: Some of the approved study-abroad programs offer internship opportunities. If you wish to arrange a "stand alone" international internship (without taking courses at that institution), please contact your Dean about this process. 
      • Exchange Program:  Champlain has a partnership with five international schools. While Burlington students immerse themselves in either New Zealand, Scotland, France, the Netherlands or Morocco, we will welcome students from our exchange partners for a semester or full academic year.
      • Faculty-Led Courses: Champlain also offers faculty-led courses. These courses change year to year, and faculty member will promote these particular offerings on campus. Many entail a semester course that spends a break or a couple weeks in the summer abroad. For more information, contact the Office of International Education.
