TWO COUNTRIES. TWO UNIVERSITIES. TWO MASTER’S DEGREES. IN JUST TWO YEARS. Kent State University in Kent, Ohio, USA, and ISIT Intercultural School in Paris, France, are announcing a ground-breaking new joint education program. Beginning in Fall 2019, students can earn both a Master of Arts in Visual Communication Design and a Master of Intercultural Digital Strategy in just two years. All students will complete a global internship.
Students will spend their first year in the program on Kent State’s campus in beautiful northeastern Ohio, studying in one of the top visual design programs in the United States. Their second year focused on intercultural digital strategy, will start off at ISIT’s Paris campus. Students will then complete an internship that can be completed almost anywhere in the world.
This opportunity is ideal for students who aspire to global careers in communication, including but not limited to advertising, web design, digital marketing, public relations, strategic communication and digital information.
Those admitted to the program must be bilingual (English and at least one other language), and the program provides opportunities to learn additional languages. A bachelor’s degree in a relevant field is recommended, but an undergraduate degree in design is not required.
Suggested semester sequence at ISIT:
- Fall Semester: early September to mid-December
- Spring Semester: mid-January to late April
These dates are tentative. Always consult the host university’s website and your Education Abroad Advisor before finalizing travel arrangements.
Participants must be formally accepted into the Dual Degree program with both KSU and ISIT.
Students will reside in local apartment housing near the ISIT campus. Students are responsible for securing their own housing. Information about available apartments near the ISIT campus can be found here.
