Online Software Development Courses

At Champlain College Online we design our online programs for working adults, and there's nowhere this is more evident than in our curricula. The software development bachelor's programs are composed of professional courses, software development courses and general education courses that provide foundational knowledge and immediate take-aways that can be applied on the job. These courses are focused, relevant and delivered in an accelerated 7-week format. (Note: Select courses are 15 weeks long. Due to the complex nature of the content of some courses, the courses cannot be condensed into 7-week sessions.)

Earn a Certificate Along the Way

In addition, we've designed this program so you can earn a certificate in one of the following chosen areas of specialization in software development before you've earned your degree: C++ ProgrammingJava ProgrammingSoftware Development, or Visual C#.
