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 two- to three-week programs for CCA students interested in studying abroad. Available during the summer, these programs are led by faculty who often have intimate knowledge of destination cities. In addition to study-abroad opportunities, students can also participate in an AICAD (Association of Independent Colleges of Art and Design) Exchange Program at another U.S. or Canadian college.
Curious to see what CCA has to offer? We welcome non-CCA students, both domestically and internationally, through the AICAD (Association of Independent Colleges of Art and Design) Exchange Program. If you’re currently at an accredited institution, please email Student Records at [email protected] for details.
Spend a summer abroad
Explore exotic destinations while earning credits through our unique summer study-abroad programs, designed and led by CCA faculty. From exploring European design capitals to experiencing the historical counterculture of contemporary design in South Korea, immersive courses around the entire globe are available.
Note: CCA Summer Study Abroad is designed for current CCA students. However, if there are spots still available by March 2, we welcome strong students from other colleges/universities into the program.
