The Integrated Study Abroad Program 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 that is very subject specific alongside degree-seeking UAL students. 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 Integrated Program is available for the fall and spring terms, during which its structure varies as follows:  

  • Fall students enroll in a 10-week term plus a mandatory 3-week pre-session module, for which they typically earn a total of 13 U.S. semester credit hours. 
  • Spring students enroll in a 19-week term, for which they typicall earn 15 U.S. semester credit hours. The spring calendar includes a 4-week break during which students may add an optional module that carries a supplemental fee and increases their course load to 18 U.S. semester credit hours

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. Please note that the courses listed are 3-year degree programs taught in a conservatory style with no electives, which you will join for a semester or year. 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 participate in only one course of study. If you are interested in multiple art forms and have the background experience and completed coursework in both, you must choose one.
After you return to the U.S., IFSA 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
