Internships in the Game Design Major

Create a Highly Marketable Game Design Résumé 

Because you'll follow a field-relevant curriculum starting in your first semester, you'll be a highly qualified candidate for internships earlier than your peers at other schools. This depth of experience sets you apart from the crowd when applying for competitive positions in this dynamic industry.

Emergent Media Center

Game Design majors may work for paid positions in the Emergent Media Center (EMC) as early as their first year at Champlain. The EMC is a collaborative studio/laboratory space where you'll use game technologies and emergent media to integrate art and code with cultural awareness, creativity, and communication on real-world game projects.
