The School of Architecture, Planning, and Landscape Architecture explores innovative, context-based studio formats through its Study Abroad Program.
 
In 1977, APLA established a nine-week traveling Study Abroad Program, which has most frequently been conducted in Western Europe. As a teaching venue, these travels are intended to challenge our students and faculty to test their ideas and knowledge of architecture, landscape architecture, environmental design, and planning against the realities of varied contexts and, in the process, expand their understanding of the nature of their varied disciplines and their effect on human experience.
 
An important development with the Provost's Office has resulted in a significant reduction in tuition for undergraduate students engaging in study abroad through the Office of International Education.  The student pays a study abroad fee in lieu of tuition, which helps offset the costs of the programs.
