At MICA, students have the ability to take part in a wide range of study abroad opportunities. The College has partnerships with more than 30 institutions overseas, as well as many domestic exchange options. From Ireland to India, these experiences not only allow students to see new places, but also to grow personally and professionally.
"Students often come back to MICA after studying abroad and explain how their experiences overseas helped them grow as an artist and a person," said Petra Visscher, director of international affairs at MICA. "They return with a variety of international contacts and with the ability to see both MICA and themselves with new eyes."

The work focuses on personal connections to a flea market known colloquially as "Thieves' Market."Image caption: Alison Young '13 (ceramics) working at Studio Art Center International in Florence, Italy.
