Emergent Media Center

Innovators welcome!

Champlain College's Emergent Media Center is an interactive media studio where you can conceptualize, prototype, and produce a wide range of media to solve challenges brought to us by community partners.

From mobile apps to wearable technology, students focus on applied research and experimentation working with a variety of emerging technologies, immersive media, and human-centered design processes to design creative solutions.

Hands-on experience developing creative media solutions for real-world challenges.
