CCA Summer Study Abroad

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we've made the difficult decision not to schedule any summer study-abroad programs for summer 2021. These programs involve extensive advanced planning and commitments with students registering in February. Most programs typically begin the third week of May. We look forward to being able to resume scheduling our renown summer study-abroad programs in 2022.


California College of the Arts has an extraordinary reputation for its unique summer study-abroad programs, designed and led by CCA faculty.

These courses are open to undergraduate and graduate students; some are interdisciplinary, while others have a particular focus but are open to students from other disciplines. Studio-focused programs can satisfy a three-credit Studio Elective or one of the requirements listed with the program. The European Design Capitals program can satisfy a three-credit H&S Elective or one of the requirements listed with its program description.
