Tentative 2023 Schedule — Attend Intersession in Searcy plus five weeks of international travel in Egypt, Greece, India and Japan

The Art and Design International (ADI) program is now accepting applications for students who want to enrich their educational experience by traveling with faculty and studying subjects related to art and culture. In the summer of 2023, participants will spend the first two weeks on Harding's campus before traveling internationally for five weeks. Included in the tour are cities and sites in Egypt, Greece, India, and Japan. The Department of Art and Design is dedicated to nurturing a Christian worldview in our students. We use travel to encourage them to develop a respect for art, architecture and design across time, culture, and geographic barriers. Once immersed in the experience, students are better equipped to appreciate their education while fostering Christian relationships with their classmates, faculty, and the people they encounter.

Limited space is available. For more information about the 2023 program, contact Dr. Amy Cox at To apply for this program, complete the online Study Abroad Application.

Summer 2023 Course Offerings

An integration of the disciplines of art, drama, history, literature, music, philosophy, religion, and science, and their influence in shaping ideas and values in the selected area of the world.

This course may be repeated for credit up to a maximum of 12 hours, provided the course is taken at different locations. This course may not be taken as a repeat for a completed liberal arts course or to satisfy an additional liberal arts requirement. Determine how you intend to apply the credits, then enroll in the appropriate number of hours. (Example: Student wants credit for ENG 2010 and MUS 1010; therefore, will enroll in 6 credit hours.)
