Art & Design Students
To enhance awareness and promote study abroad experiences, Art and Design study abroad students, studying for one semester or more, will be required to exhibit their art & design work in a group exhibition in the Gallery 209, upon their return, as organized by the Art & Design Department's International Studies Committee. Students in short-term programs are not required but encouraged to participate. While the work is on exhibit, students will be expected to organize the appropriate faculty and the program director to assess their work for related study abroad credits, as needed. Students returning from HAWK will exhibit their work in September and students returning from all other programs in February. Students will also be responsible for submitting a complete electronic portfolio (CD, DVD) of their work to the Program Office by the end of their exhibition week. Students will not receive equivalent Stout credits until the exhibition and electronic portfolio requirements are satisfied.
