Career Pathway: Art & Design

Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD)

Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD) has collaborated with the IB Career-related Programme (CP) to create a joint enrollment package geared to students who wish to pursue a degree in Art & Design.

Students who complete the Career-related Programme earn the International Baccalaureate Career-related Programme Certificate.

SCAD courses taken to fulfill the career-related studies requirement within the CP will give students the option to progress to higher education with university-level credit already on their transcripts.

SCAD courses can be used as the career-related study component portion of the CP as long as these three requirements are met:

  1. Students must take at least two IB academic courses
  2. Students must complete the CP core
  3. Students must complete the approved career programme from SCAD
  4. Students must meet or exceed SCAD’s normal undergraduate admission requirements

How: Students undertake courses online through SCAD eLearning campus.

Duration: Within the two-year timeline of the CP (last two years of school).

Cost: The cost of the SCAD courses is borne by IGBIS.
