Education Abroad for Art Practice Majors
Education Abroad for
Art Practice Majors
Globalize Your Education
Art Practice majors are highly encouraged to study abroad. Go beyond borders and explore idea generation, influences, materials, tools, and methods abroad and add a valuable experience to your degree.
Review the resources here to help decide how an international experience can fit into your degree plan. It is important to work with your College of the Arts Undergraduate Advisor and an Education Abroad advisor early on in the application process to make sure that you are choosing the best program to fit your goals and meet major requirements. Your Education Abroad advisor can also help you explore ways to use financial aid, scholarships, and grants to finance your travel!
