Expand your horizons
Discover new ways of making and learning and expose your art to diverse audiences by studying abroad. You’ll explore new cultures and unique perspectives, meet other artists and designers, get introduced to historically and aesthetically significant cities, develop your artistic abilities, and broaden your understanding of what it means to be a creative citizen in the 21st century.
We offer a variety of programs for CCA students to study abroad. CCA has partner institutions, domestically and all around the world, for you to choose from. You can study abroad for a semester or for a two- to three-week summer session.
Curious to see what CCA has to offer? We welcome non-CCA students, both domestically and internationally, through programs like the AICAD (Association of Independent Colleges of Art and Design) and the CCA International Exchange. If you’re currently at an accredited institution, please email the International Student Affairs and Programs Office at [email protected] for details.
