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.

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) 
Fall Studio Art students typically earn 13 U.S. semester credit hours (10 U.S. semester credit hours for the fall term plus the mandatory European Art History: London and Berlin module (3 U.S. semester credit hours).

Spring Studio Art students typically earn 20 U.S. semester credit hours (10 per term) and full year students earn 30 U.S. semester credit hours.
