PARSONS SCHOOL OF DESIGN
Since 1983, The Altos de Chavón School of Design has been affiliated with the prestigious Parsons School of Design, an educational institution founded in 1896 that enjoys a great international reputation for its dedication to excellence in the fields of art and design.
Under the 2+2 affiliation program, students who graduate from The School of Design may apply to the third year of their specialty in Parsons, thereby gaining the opportunity to earn a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from one of the world’s most important institutions of art education.
Universidad APEC (UNAPEC)
In 1999, The School of Design established an academic agreement with UNAPEC that allows students of both institutions to continue their studies in fine arts and communication design through the validation of credits. Chavón graduates can study at UNAPEC for approximately two additional years to obtain a bachelor’s degree. Conversely, UNAPEC students can study at Chavón for full semesters, and their credits will be recognized by their alma mater when they re-enroll there to complete their final work for their bachelor’s degree.
Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (National Autonomous University of Mexico, UNAM)
This agreement permits students to continue their studies in communication design or fine arts at the National School of Visual Arts, which is part of UNAM.
Universidad Autónoma de Occidente (Autonomous University of the West, UAO)
In 2006 The School of Design established an academic interchange agreement with the UAO that allows for faculty and student exchange in Chavón’s regular and special programs. To date, exchanges have been developed for workshops and short courses. Also, students transferred from the UAO can participate in courses at Chavón with the aim of completing the UAO’s academic requirements.
Fundación Universitaria del Área Andina (University Foundation of the Andean Area)
This agreement allows for the exchange of faculty, and of students, to complement the programs of both institutions. To date, The School has had an annual exchange of faculty members, who have been invited to give fashion design workshops. In addition, students have been able to register for academic semesters in their sister school and have their studies recognized as a complement to the academic requirements of their home institution.
