Off-campus Study Options

Students interested in study in the arts have a wealth of opportunities available to them through Reed's overseas programs. Reed has a program in Classics and Art History in Rome; exchange programs with the University of East Anglia and Sussex University in England, and Trinity College Dublin in Ireland, which have a strong art history focus; and program at the Hebrew University which also offers courses in art history. Reed’s collaborative program with Sarah Lawrence College in Florence, Italy offers excellent possibilities for students interested in both applied art and art history. For students with a second language there are superb course opportunities in art through Reed’s programs in China, Germany and France. Two of Reed's domestic exchange programs, at Howard University—a predominantly African American university in Washington, DC—and at Sarah Lawrence College in New York, offer strong art history and studio art programs.
