There are a few types of International Education offered through MassArt: Travel Courses, MassArt International Exchange, AICAD Mobility Programs, and Study Abroad Programs.
Travel Courses are available throughout the year at MassArt. Those during the summer may limit graduate student enrollment until thesis semester, but there are other opportunities are offered during Winter Break and Spring Break each year, extending the spring break beyond the 10 days to 2-3 weeks. These are open to all undergraduate and graduate students. Visit inside.massart.edu for a list of current International Travel Courses.
MassArt International Exchanges are full immersion programs, designed for the independent and self-motivated student. Due to the nature of an exchange, students are required to speak the language of the host country and are often the only student from MassArt at the partner school. Students pay MassArt for the regular full-time tuition and fees applicable to their state of residency during the semester they will travel. Most forms of financial aid apply, but it is important to check with the financial aid office for more information.
MassArt has reciprocal exchange partnerships with the following institutions:
Australia: Melbourne University/Victorian College of Art
Japan: Osaka Seikei University, Kyoto University of Art and Design
Netherlands: ArtEZ Institute of the Arts (AKI), Willem de Kooning Academie
South Korea: Korea National University of Arts
Spain: University of Barcelona
United Kingdom: Edinburgh College of Art, Glasgow School of Art, University College for the Creative Arts
AICAD Mobility Programs are available for undergraduate students to participate in semester-long exchanges throughout North America. MassArt is a member of the Association of Independent Colleges of Art and Design (AICAD). To learn more about the AICAD programs, visit aicad.org
Study Abroad Programs are ideal for students who are more comfortable with being part of a group, which often has the support of host-country coordinators. A wide range of academic programs are available in over 100 countries.
