The Sam Fox School sponsors several international programs that give students in both art and architecture the opportunity to spend the summer studying in Europe.

The Florence Summer Program provides all Washington University students, as well as students from other universities, the opportunity to study art or architecture in Italy.

Sommerakademie is a seminar-based course open to graduate art and senior-level undergraduate students that explores the international contemporary art center of Berlin, Germany.

The Summer Travel Drawing Program introduces students to meaningful historic and contemporary developments in architecture and urbanism through the direct and comparative experience of travel and sketching.

The Barcelona Summer Program gives graduate architecture students the opportunity to learn in a Spanish city whose impressive portfolio of architecture—from medieval to contemporary—and urban design makes it one of the most attractive cities in the world.

The Global Urbanism Studio provides Master of Urban Design students the opportunity to study and experience significant global cities in Asia, Africa, or South America.
