Study abroad

Summer Studies Trip

A global-minded education broadens your academic experience with VA Summer Studies Trips.

With these 4-5 week trips, students not only explore the art and architectural wonders of the world but get involved in hands-on work that benefits various ministries.

Earn 6-9 hours of art credit while exploring places you've never been. Past trips have included England, Germany, Spain, New Zealand, Bali and Guatemala.


European Art Tour

The European Art Tour takes students on a two-week adventure to one or more European destinations to see great art each summer.

We take a maximum of 12 students and two faculty, and we visit major art galleries, museums, architectural sites, iconic local sites, and fun local color. Typical locations include Paris, Amsterdam, London, Rome, Venice, Florence, Madrid, and Barcelona, but every year is different.

Subsidized by an endowment, the European Art Tour is a great deal for students.
