Welcome to the International Education Center!

The International Education Center (IEC) prepares the MassArt community to participate in the creative economy by supporting international experiences, encouraging intercultural connections, and promoting success in a diverse world. In support of this mission, the International Education Center is committed to creating a campus climate that recognizes and celebrates the value of global exchange. We provide opportunities for individuals within the MassArt community to develop a path toward global competency. Global competency includes: developing a knowledge of others and knowledge of self; developing skills to interpret, relate to, discover, and interact with others; valuing others’ beliefs and behaviors; and revitalizing one’s self.

Below you will find helpful information related to IEC processes.
