• Is designed to be affordable for all Moore students, with need-based financial aid available for qualified students.
• Gives students an international perspective sooner, providing them with a deeper and holistic understanding of global creative industries early in their college experiences.
• Enriches students’ learning, better informing their future careers.
• Enhances students’ problem solving skills, ability to see multiple perspectives, and capacity to develop multiple solutions, all characteristics that are highly prized by employers.

Paired with Moore’s required internship experience and leadership development programs, this new initiative for early international study opportunities underscores Moore’s commitment to academic excellence and to preparing students for their lives as working professionals and leaders in art and design.
