Discover our Upside-Down Curriculum

When we say we do things differently at Champlain, we emphasize the "do." Our unique learning approach flips traditional college curricula on its head, putting you in your major-specific classes first so you can dig into your passion with hands-on, experiential learning on day one.

Learn about the Core

Our Core curriculum is unlike the general education you'd receive at a traditional college. Here, you progress with your classmates through the same competencies, with your choice of subject area to learn through context. We don't let those critical skills slip through the cracks.

Plus, explore our Centers of Experience, including the Emergent Media Center and the Senator Patrick Leahy Center for Digital Forensics & Cybersecurity. Chat with representatives from Champlain Abroad, Housing & Residential Life, Women's & Gender Center, Office of Diversity & Inclusion, and more.

I decided to come to Champlain because of its small community. When I came here for a tour, I automatically felt a connection from everyone, being so close with each other and being so friendly.
