SAM and McNally Smith college of Music,USA(MSCM) signed the International Experience Agreement(IEA) in April 2012 which paves the way of semester abroad programs for SAM and McNally students. Under the IEA, a SAM student can take semester abroad and study at MSCM and MSCM student can take semester abroad and study at SAM. This semester exchange program is a wonderful opportunity for SAM students which enables an educational experience not available at SAM. This includes exposure to different culture, find unique experience, learn about national performing styles and seek career opportunities.
SAM students may take up to fifteen (15) credits per semester at MSCM. Of these fifteen credits, two (2) credits may be APP (Private Lessons) courses once they are accepted to MSCM.
