This special program, lasting a maximum of three semesters, begins in summer and offers intensive English as a Second Language (ESL) study and studio coursework. The program is set up so you can continue your artistic development with studio courses while studying English.
You can enter the ESL/Studio Program as a freshman or sophomore, and transfer students may be eligible to receive credit for liberal arts or studio coursework at another educational institution. The program is also open to U.S. citizens and permanent residents whose primary language is not English or whose English proficiency does not meet the requirements for undergraduate study at SVA.
