The School of Communication, Media and The Arts is committed to fostering intellectually engaged, ethical and responsible graduates with the social, artistic and professional skills necessary to succeed in the modern media landscape, as well as a lasting commitment to their civic obligations.  SCMA also recognizes the growing internationalization of the media industries, and the necessity of helping our students to develop intercultural awareness if they are to succeed as communications professionals in an interconnected world.

Study Abroad

As part of our wider efforts to promote global self-awareness and understanding of multiple worldviews and diverse perspectives, SCMA offers courses and programs that help students to develop the intercultural competence that will help them to thrive in the modern global media environment.
In addition to courses with a focus on international subject matter, each year SCMA’s own faculty offer multiple study abroad opportunities. The study abroad programs include both semester-long and short course programs that are seamlessly integrated into our curriculum, so that students can have a rewarding study abroad experience without losing step with their classmates. We regularly offer SCMA-taught study abroad courses in Ireland, Luxembourg, and India, as well as occasional offerings in additional locations.
