Study Abroad

Study abroad can enhance your degree and we encourage you to participate. In recent years, SVAD faculty have led Global USC programs in Italy, Japan and Ghana, and we’re currently developing new programs in England and Hong Kong.

We also have a Global Exchange program with the Minerva Art Academy at Hanze University in the Netherlands, and our students have recently studied in Cuba, Ireland, Germany, India, Oman and Spain. 

We’re constantly evaluating new programs and destinations, and USC Study Abroad has sent students to every continent, including Antarctica. SVAD students have the whole world at their doorstep.
