Since 1899, Moore has expanded its students’ intercultural knowledge through travel and study opportunities to global destinations. These annual journeys will take you and your peers out into the world, providing new context for what you'll learn in the classroom. While immersing yourself in a different culture, you'll earn three-course credits and make a lifetime of memories.Study Abroad in Rome 2024 - January 2-15, 2023 Designing Childhood: A History of Toys and the Culture of Play in England and Beyond, photo of The Coliseum in Rome

Save the Date for Rome 2024: Ways of Seeing, Sketching Through Rome's Art & Culture

This course consists of a two-week immersive experience in Rome, where students from all majors, through free-hand sketching, will tell a story about their observations while being introduced to the vast cultural legacy of this unique city. At the end of this course, each student will have produced a series of sketches representing episodes of their personal narrative of the trip, as it will be inspire by both their direct experiences throughout a new city and the academic interests they bring from home.

Moore offers three competitive summer fellowships for juniors designed to expand students’ artistic horizons outside of the classroom through international travel:

  • The Sis Grenald International Travel Fellowship: $2,500
  • The Frieda Fehrenbacher International Travel Fellowship: $2,500
  • The Fitzgibbon Endowed International Travel Fellowship: $4,800

Students compete for these fellowships in the spring of each academic year with a written proposal outlining how the fellowship will support the development of their work, and with an installation of a selection of their work in the Paley Gallery.

Moore students can access additional opportunities for international study through mobility programs that are offered. Moore College of Art & Design participates in the mobility program of the Association of Independent Colleges of Art and Design (AICAD).  This is an informal relationship through which undergraduate students from Moore may spend one semester at a member institution.  The Mobility program is open to students in their junior year.  The student pays tuition to Moore, not the host institution, and must finance her own room and board.  While there are a number of member institutions in the United States, the Canadian affiliates are as follows:


Alberta College of Art & Design – Calgary
Emily Carr University of Art & Design – Vancouver
Nova Scotia College of Art & Design – Halifax
Ontario College of Art & Design – Toronto
