Study Abroad

The Academy of Art University has several study abroad programs to further enrich your art education. They are intensive creative and cultural experiences that immerse students in the art-making process as well as the European cultural context from which it is derived. All classes are taught by Academy faculty teaching to the same high standards as in our on-campus classes.


The Fine Art program in Italy is an immersive creative and cultural experience in Florence, with excursions to some of Italy's most notable sights, and an intensive study of Painting and Drawing.


The Liberal Arts Department and The School of Art History are excited to announce that Italy will be the Study Abroad destination for Summer Intersession 2015. (May 26- June 12, 2015). In this three-week intensive, students will study and then write about the art collections of Italy.


The Fashion department awards two students per year with an exchange scholarship to study in Paris at Studio Bercot or L'Ecole de la Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne.
