KCAD offers study away opportunities both domestically and internationally. KCAD encourages
students to experience the world through one of these programs to broaden their understanding
of art, design, art history, or art education and to gain a global perspective. Study
away is also the type of experience that potential employers notice. Students that
participate in study away programs are open-minded, persistent, and organized – all
great attributes for employment.
KCAD faculty lead programs that range in length from two to four weeks and are typically
offered during the summer semester. Students can independently study for a full semester
or academic year overseas. Many programs offer both studio and general education credits.
This summer KCAD faculty are leading trips to places like Italy and Sweden. Their
students can earn credits in Architecture, Art History, Humanities, Graphic Design,
Photography or as Electives.
Students must check with their faculty advisor and the Director of Student Engagement
in the Activities and Resource Center before registering for a study away program.
Financial Aid may be available depending on a student’s financial situation and the
total number of credit hours in which a student is enrolled during the study away
program. Students can visit the Activities and Resource Center for information on
