Study Abroad

Art students have opportunities for study at locations outside the Ypsilanti campus. They include our travel-study trips to European countries and cities such as London, Paris, Rome, and elsewhere. Past study abroad programs include:

  • London Art/Graphic Design
  • Paris Art and Art History

London Art/Graphic Design

Eastern Michigan University's Art Department in cooperation with the Office of Academic Programs Abroad, offered a three-week study program at London College of Communication in London, England.

The program provided professional designers and students from EMU and other institutions an opportunity to learn more about British and European graphic design and typographic practices.

This was delivered through interaction with London College of Communication faculty and students and British design professionals, studio and museum visits, studio projects, and a lecture programme in order to contextualise the contemporary cultural and social landscape.

Projects were based around students gaining an understanding of the historical, technological and contemporary context of graphic design in Britain. Issues of contemporary design practice were addressed through master class projects with practitioners noted in their specialist fields, such as letterpress, and visits to venues related to the themed projects.

Paris Art and Art History

A three-week intensive exploration of historical and contemporary art in the city of Paris. Students do both historical research and studio-based projects.
