The College of Fine Arts Department of Art & Design offers a study abroad program to Florence, Italy. Each summer, around 15 students and a faculty member participate in the program, which provided up to six credit hours of Marshall credit. The program started on May 2010, and continued on May 2011. In May 2012, the program was team taught by faculty in the College of Fine Arts and the College of Liberal Arts. The trips were arranged by the Center for International Programs at Marshall through a contract with CAPA International Education.
