Study Abroad and Exchange Programs
The Department of Architecture at KSU strongly encourages students to be part of the global community, to experience architecture, art and urbanism first hand and to broaden their exposure to international design.
Local, national and international Design Collaborations provide intellectual forums for our faculty and students to exchange ideas and research and develop a better understanding of other cultural approaches to the built environment.
KSU has an extensive study abroad initiative that provides numerous opportunities for students to travel and study abroad. The Department of Architecture offers unique architecture specific study abroad and workshop programs. These programs are administered through the office of international studies.

Summer 2019 Programs
Dessau Summer School of Architecture
The Dessau Summer School of Architecture develops its thematic focus from the relevance of Bauhaus Dessau in the history of architecture. Parts of the course are conducted within Bauhaus Dessau.
At the Dessau Summer School of Architecture, participants from different nations enter into an architectural dialogue on a review of modernity in architecture. To this purpose, the components of the program place current developments in architecture and design in relation to the history of modernity and to its evidence on site.
Dessau Summer School of Architecture starts with a workshop in cooperation with Bauhaus Dessau Foundation on the mutual relations between education and design in the Bauhaus Aula. Following this, the Studio is closely related to this context.
Art Class, Architecture and Society including German Language Class, Excursions to close and also more remote locations of Modern Architecture develop and deepen this focal point.
