The Office of International Education (OIE) at the Boulder campus provides broad opportunities for international education for students and faculty. The OIE sponsors study abroad programs for undergraduates wishing to spend part of their academic career abroad, serves as host to foreign students and scholars who come to Boulder, and provides advice and assistance to students, faculty, and staff who are interested in an international dimension to their study, teaching, or research. And finally, financial aid and scholarships are available.

The College has historically offered a semester abroad program in Florence and Rome in the Fall or Spring semester. If you do spend a semester in Florence or Rome, you will live in a student apartment while attending design, history, and language classes with local faculty. In addition, the program organizes a cultural activities series, offers optional social activities, and provides support and guidance. Plans for an expansion of study abroad opportunities are currently being considered. These immersion semesters are offered to upper-division undergraduate students.
