Special Curriculum Options
STUDIO ART OPTION
The Studio Art option (referred to as "Integrated Study Abroad" by UAL) is for a student who is likely to be an art, design, fashion, communications or performance major already with a strong background in these areas. You should be prepared for an intensive, independent study alongside degree-seeking UAL students that is very subject specific. This option is ideal for a student from a fine arts school or program that can support a portfolio of 20-25 images of their work. The Studio Art option is available for the following terms:
  • Academic year (10 weeks in the fall, 20 weeks in the spring)
  • Fall term (10 week term plus a mandatory 2 week pre-sessional European Art History Module)
  • Spring two terms (two 10 week terms totaling 20 weeks for the entire spring)

SEMESTER OPTION
The Semester option is for students with a strong interest in art, design, or fashion and will have taken a number of classes in these areas but it is perhaps not their major. This option is closer to the Liberal Arts model that many students might be familiar with and offers a more structured experience. Students who are interested in studying at UAL for the full academic year should apply for the Studio Art option. Students will be studying alongside other overseas students with opportunities to collaborate with local students. Semester option students take a few mandatory modules and then choose a few electives. The Semester option is available for the following terms:
  • Fall semester (14 weeks)
  • Spring semester (14 weeks)
Course Restrictions
Course descriptions in the online course catalog include prerequisites and portfolio requirements that you must fulfill in order to apply to the course when applicable. You will be accepted to study in Year 1 or Year 2 of the course you have chosen, on the basis of your course background and experience. Students can take only one course of study in one subject. If a student is interested in multiple art forms and has the background experience and completed coursework in both, he/she must choose one.
Transcripts
After you return to the U.S., IFSA-Butler will send a Butler University transcript to your home university and to your permanent address. The transcript reflects the courses taken, credits attempted, and grades earned during your term abroad. This service is included in your study abroad program at no additional cost
