All RISD Global Summer Studies courses are open to undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in art and design programs and colleges around the world, as well as to professionals practicing in the field. Each course is three (3) RISD credits. Registration closes on April 11, 2019.
Led by RISD faculty from diverse disciplines, each course is designed to broaden perspectives, de-center experiences and reframe assumptions. Through immersive experimental curricula developed in collaboration with local partners across the continents of Europe, Africa, and Asia, students in these courses engage such themes as performance and literary arts in context, the intersection of crafts, art and design, and environmental justice and sciences.
