STUDY ABROAD PROGRAMS
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. Current 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, is pleased to offer a three-week study program at London College of Communication in London, England.
The intent of the program is to provide professional designers and students from EMU and other institutions an opportunity to learn more about British and European graphic design and typographic practices.
This is delivered through interaction with current 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 will be based around students gaining an understanding of the historical, technological and contemporary context of graphic design in Britain. Issues of contemporary design practice will be 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 intesive exploration of historical and contemporary art in the city of Paris. Students do both historical research and studio-based projects.
