Not all schools are created equal.

We do things differently here.

At Champlain, you'll experience small class sizes and professors who are 100% dedicated to giving you the best possible education. We're not talking textbooks and lectures. We're talking hands-on practical learning from professors who have extensive industry experience in their fields. They bring their expertise into the classroom and get you out into the real world learning from your own experiences as soon as possible.

Our innovative Upside-Down Curriculum gets you started in the classes that matter most to you—beginning in your very first semester, so you can start internships as early as the summer after your first year.

An award-winning college focused entirely on your success.

There's no doubt that our approach is one of the reasons that, year after year, we appear in the most prestigious college ranking guides. Some of our recent accolades include:

  • A "Most Innovative School" in U.S. News & World Report's 2019 "America's Best Colleges" regional rankings—for the fourth year in a row. In 2019 Champlain also earned top rangings in "Best Undergraduate Teaching;"Best Value Schools;" and "Regional Universities in the North"
  • One of the "best and most interesting schools" in the United States, Canada and Great Britain, according to the Fiske Guide to Colleges for 2019 
  • 2018 College of Distinction for "excellence in undergraduate education," according to Colleges of Distinction.
  • "Top School for Video Game Design" in 2018 in The Princeton Review
  • #12 in the nation for our percentage of students studying abroad among leading colleges and universities by the Institute of International Education

To name a few.

Come join the fun

Give perspective to your whole college search.

When you come to the Winter Open House, you'll begin to see for yourself the benefits of:

  • an innovative, career-focused approach to higher education (our grads consistently land jobs in their field at rates higher than national averages);
  • faculty with extensive industry experience in the subject areas in which they teach;
  • a stunningly beautiful campus (we argue it's one of the most beautiful in the country);
  • a creative, ambitious and tight-knit community and outstanding student life activities, clubs and trips;
  • residence halls you can really call home (because they are actually houses—Victorian-era mansions to be specific).

It will give you a good benchmark for what to ask and look for as you visit other schools.

Get ready to discover the major difference of Champlain.

If you've been researching colleges, you already know that most lists of majors look more or less the same, with maybe a few that stand out from those you've seen nearly everywhere else.

When you look at Champlain College's list of majors, can you see what links them together? We'll spare you the suspense: Champlain's career-focused majors offer the greatest potential for future employment.

So, on our list of majors you'll find some "traditional" fields, like Accounting, Communication and Social Work, and you'll find a bunch of "nontraditional" majors, like Data Analytics, Computer Networking & Cybersecurity, Game Production Management, Creative Media, Professional Writing, Management & Innovation, and Environmental Studies & Policy, that you will not likely have encountered anywhere else.

No matter which major you choose, your Champlain education will be anything but "typical." Here, there's no such thing.

Sound good? We thought so.

We'd love to show and tell you so much more.
