Study Away

We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and the health, safety and welfare of our students remains the utmost priority as we plan our study away programming.


Global linkages are a key component of a fashion student's education. School of Fashion students are required to complete an approved study-away experience prior to graduation. Kent State Fashion offers international study abroad experiences in six European and Asian countries, two faculty-led study tours, various internship opportunities, and domestic study away experiences in New York and Los Angeles.
