Study Abroad

Earn credit and experience

Herron’s study abroad programs are led by full-time Herron faculty members during spring break and summer terms. Students earn credits in art history or studio art that easily satisfy degree requirements.

In addition to credits, students leave host countries with an experience of a lifetime. All Herron study abroad programs are designed to expand students’ awareness of art and design issues in an international context, while also deepening their understanding of a foreign culture.
