ART &  DESIGN

Art and Design is another pathway for Career-related study available to Western International School of Shanghai students. It is accessible as an eLearning opportunity through the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD). As an IB-approved collaboration, SCAD offers a plethora of university-level courses based on foundation-level Art and Design. A variety of courses on offer affords WISS students a flexible pathway to explore their passion. Students will work on their SCAD courses in school via an online learning platform; they will also have the opportunity to take a summer course on some SCAD campuses worldwide (Hong Kong, Atlanta, Savannah). As SCAD courses are already at the university level, it will be advantageous for students when applying to universities and colleges worldwide; it is also much easier to transition into an undergraduate program of study at SCAD itself.


SCAD offers a variety of courses to IBCP students and will allow them to take any general education, foundations, or major-specific courses – provided they satisfy the necessary prerequisites. Enrollment at WISS does not guarantee admission into IBCP-SCAD. Students interested in the IBCP-SCAD pathway must apply and be accepted into the program. They will be asked to submit a portfolio and reference letters from previous teachers as part of the SCAD application process. Students who maintain a GPA of 3.0 or higher with strong portfolios will be granted an academic scholarship by SCAD to allow them to study without paying additional fees.


SCAD will create unique pathways for each student based on their interests. Our College Counselor and CP Coordinator will support this decision-making process. SCAD currently offers nine different tracks: General/Foundations, General/Foundations and Liberal Arts, General/Foundations and Liberal Arts (No DRAW 100 Required), General/Foundations – Digital Media Majors, Interactive Design and Game Development, Photography, Advertising and Branding, Graphic Design, and Sequential Art.
