Study Abroad with SoVA

Penn State and the School of Visual Arts (SoVA) sponsor a variety of study abroad programs that offer an experience of a lifetime. Knowing how to respond in meaningful ways to the increasingly global world we inhabit requires imagination and creativity. This happens in unique ways within the study abroad experience where students enhance their individual capacity for invention, reflection, and openness, and learn to trust where these creative dispositions might take them. This not only expands their worldview, but also increases  career readiness and opportunities for graduate study.

SoVA’s international program makes it possible for students to complete upper-level studio art courses for Penn State credit while studying abroad. The links to the left list the study abroad programs available.
