The International Experience is required for all BA in Art & Design and BFA in Art & Design students except those whose permanent address is not in the U.S., who are enrolled in the BFA in Interarts Performance, or who are enrolled in the Art & Design minor. The requirement can be fulfilled through a Stamps-sponsored study abroad program; an approved internship; or, an independent research, volunteer, or service-learning experience that has been pre-approved. Stamps pre-approved program locations include Costa Rica, Denmark, France, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, the U.K., and more. The International Experience needs to be at least three weeks in duration, located outside the US, and take place after matriculation at U‑M but not during the first year at Stamps or during the Sophomore Review semester.
