For thirty years students in the Visual Arts Department along with students from disciplines throughout the University have participated in our comprehensive Study Abroad Program where we make other countries our classrooms.
Ranging from late May through the middle of July, these programs are taught by UL faculty from a wide range of departments and are centered in France and Italy for six weeks, and England for two weeks.
Students have the opportunity to learn about different styles and the history of the visual arts in addition to other academic disciplines while immersing in the culture, cuisine, cities, and countryside. Students from all majors are encouraged to participate in these programs where interdisciplinary interests and exchange is encouraged.
A variety of academic scholarships and financial aid options are available for these programs which are advertised beginning in September and for which the registration process continues throughout March in the year of travel.
