Program Description:


Poland is a fascinating country that serves as the geographical and cultural crossroads of Eastern and Western Europe. Located at the center of the Northern European plain, Poland has been a nation of survivors since the foundation of the first Polish state more than 1000 years ago. The unique opportunity to study in Warsaw, capitol of Poland, comes in cooperation and the exchange with the Academy of Fine Arts (ASP Warsaw), which kindly opens its studios for the international students and provides the necessary help for the faculty in the area of art and design. The Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw is the oldest and largest art institution of higher education in Poland. The short-term study in Warsaw will include the selected topics in Art, Art History and Design, as well as some International Culture and Study abroad courses. Also, relatively short distance to Krakow and Gdansk, can make short, one-two day trips a possibility to explore cities culturally vivid, historically important and attractive, yet further from Warsaw.

Financial Aid & Scholarships

Financial Aid and scholarships are only available to currently enrolled MSU students. If you are a visiting student from another institution, you will need to work with your home institution Financial Aid Office to identify any available aid.

The seven colleges at Missouri State University are pleased to announce their respective Study Away Scholarships. A scholarship fund has been established by MSU’s President, International Programs, and the respective college to assist students with their study abroad. Search available college scholarships here!
