Study Abroad: Media Arts and Design

The field of media arts and design plays an important role in shaping our ever-changing global society. Studying abroad not only immerses students in a cultural experience, but also allows them to study how people influence and relate to each other in written and visual symbols through mediated communication (print , electronic and online). Suddenly, a “foreign film” is no longer foreign, but an expression of something that they too have experienced and experienced.
