Champlain College is a private, nonprofit institution located in Burlington, Vt., dedicated to providing relevant, career-focused higher education. Founded in 1878 as Burlington Business School, Champlain College has evolved over the years to offer a more extensive range of programs. Champlain College is distinctive for its upside-down curriculum, which allows students to take select courses in their major beginning in their first semester rather than just taking basics to start off.
Champlain College has been recognized for its quality by being ranked among the Princeton Review’s Best 376 Colleges for 2012. In addition, Champlain College was ranked No. 13 among regional colleges in the north by U.S. News & World Report in 2012.
In addition to its high-quality, campus-based programs, Champlain College offers more than 30 degree and certificate programs fully online. The courses in these online programs are delivered asynchronously, meaning a student is not required to log in at certain times during the week and has 24/7 access to his or her classes. This allows for a great deal of flexibility for when the student can access lectures, complete assignments, participate in discussions, and take exams, provided they are completed by the instructor’s due date.
Champlain College offers online programs at the associate, bachelor’s, and master’s level. Undergraduate programs are available in fields of business, technology, and health care, with programs in accounting, business management, computer forensics, network security, health informatics, health care management, and more. Online master’s degree programs are available in business administration, law, managing innovation and information technology, healthcare management, and early childhood education.
Distinctive online master’s programs offered by Champlain College include emergent media, digital forensic management, digital forensic science, and mediation and applied conflict studies. These modern programs help students gain expertise in niche areas that align closely with their current careers or career goals.
