Admission to the Arts Core Program

Students of all ages, majors, and backgrounds are eligible to apply for admission to the Marchutz School of Fine Arts Core Program. Students are encouraged, if they can, to spend a full academic year abroad. It is principally during the second semester that they benefit to the fullest from their experience in France. Students may also apply for one semester, a summer term, or a combination of these.
