    Champlain College

    At Champlain, 2,200 full-time traditional undergraduate students, eighty percent of which come from out of state, focus on thirty career-driven majors, twenty-two minors, and thirty specializations. With small class sizes and a 13:1 student/faculty ratio, every Champlain degree is built on a foundation of uncompromising academic excellence.  Champlain’s agile and entrepreneurial approach to higher education uniquely blends technology, leadership, market savvy, innovation, and fiscal responsibility with a commitment to liberal learning, community involvement and the human touch. The Class of 2015 achieved a six-month career success rate of 96 percent. Champlain has a strong track record of preparing students for professional careers and placing them at leading companies.

    One reason our students achieve such success, and one of the top reasons students choose Champlain College, is our three-dimensional approach to education. The Upside-Down curriculum requires students to start courses in their major in their first semester.  As a result, students have four full years to develop the skills essential for success in their desired field.  Through the Core curriculum, students explore important themes that form the foundation for critical thinking and superior communication skills.  Students graduate from Champlain not just as experts in their fields, but as well-rounded global citizens on a path towards the life-long learning that will be critical in our rapidly-changing world. Rounding out the professional and Core curricula, the third dimension of the Champlain education is our LEAD program (Life Experience and Action Dimension). In LEAD, a required, non-credit program of study, students develop career and life management skills in the context of becoming successful professionals and engaged global citizens.

    The College sits on 22 acres in the beautiful hill section of Burlington, Vermont, overlooking Lake Champlain. Our campuses in Montreal, Canada, and Dublin, Ireland provide students with the opportunity to continue their Champlain education in study abroad. The undergraduate academic programs are housed in The Robert P. Stiller School of Business, the Division of Communication & Creative Media, the Division of Education & Human Studies, and the Division of Technology and Sciences. First year students are housed in one of 19 restored Victorian-era mansions that have retained their distinctive character and charm, yet are fully equipped with the latest technology.  Other residential housing options include modern apartment-style and suite accommodations.
