International Education Center

The International Education Center (IEC) prepares the MassArt community to participate in the creative economy by supporting international experiences, encouraging intercultural connections, and promoting success in a diverse world. In support of this mission, the International Education Center is committed to creating a campus climate that recognizes and celebrates the value of global exchange.

We encourage you to enhance your artistic perspective through a MassArt Travel Course, Exchange Programs, or a third-party study abroad program.

Special Notice: Opportunities for global education have been severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Because of the unpredictability of travel now and in the foreseeable future, MassArt sponsored international travel, including travel during the fall 2021semester, is currently suspended. This is an important temporary measure to protect our community and to help minimize risk for all during the global crisis. However, the IEC continues to advise students on future opportunities; please contact Amy Holland, Study Abroad Advisor.
