About Us

ArtsAbroad is an organization based near Washington, D.C. that provides study abroad summer and semester programs to individual high school or college students in the arts. Students from around the world in fields such as music, dance, visual arts, design, theater, film, and writing are offered the opportunity to improve their artistic abilities, tour treasured historical sites for the arts, and attend world-class performances and exhibits.

University students continue to remain enrolled in their home university and request transfer credit at the end of their program. Some programs offer enrollment alongside local students at a host school, while others are led by a U.S. faculty and staff. All programs are customized to meet the specific interest and needs of arts students, and specialized services such as musical instrument insurance, predeparture and travel advice are offered.

ArtsAbroad is a member of NAFSA: Association of International Educators, and follows the standards of good practice set by NAFSA and The Forum on Education Abroad.
