Semester Study Abroad
Enhance your artistic perspective through a MassArt International Exchange, AICAD Mobility, or Study Abroad Program. Qualified undergraduate students may participate in an exchange, mobility, or study abroad program during one semester of their junior year and must meet with Amy Holland ( in the International Education Office to apply. It is never too early to start planning!

MassArt International Exchanges are full immersion programs at one of our reciprocal exchange partner institutions. Students enroll directly in the institution abroad but pay MassArt tuition and fees.  Most forms of financial aid apply, but it is important to check with the financial aid office for more information. Because of the immersive nature of these programs, students must be independent-minded. MassArt has reciprocal exchange partnerships with the following institutions:
