Study Abroad

The Visual Arts faculty actively support study abroad.

Professor Brian Ransom has taken three winter term groups to Peru, and one to London. Meanwhile Professor David Gliem has taken winter term study groups to London and Paris, Professor Arthur Skinner has taken a number of study abroad trips to Italy over the years, and Professor Kirk Wang has taken two different study groups to China. Eckerd also annually offers a Winter Term to New Mexico, where selected students can work with faculty at Ghost Ranch in photography, jewelry, ceramics or weaving.

Eckerd’s Office of Global Education features a very rich variety of opportunities to study abroad both for a semester and Winter Term. Prominent among the semester opportunities is Eckerd’s Study Centre in the heart of London, at 35 Gower Street, where one can study Art History and Theatre with resident faculty. Students may also elect to take advantage of semester abroad programs offered by affiliate institutions in Italy and elsewhere.
