IAU College - Aix-en-Provence, France

Cain Aix En Provence 2

The Aix-en-Provence study abroad program offers students the opportunity to spend a semester or summer session taking courses in French through the French Honors Program at the IAU College. Located in the heart of Provence, the IAU College enables students to experience the culture of the south of France. While Aix-en-Provence emits the charm of traditional French culture in an intimate setting, it still maintains the hustle and bustle of a city. The quaint town is known for its beloved painter, Paul Cézanne, who painted the surrounding rolling landscape. Local excursions during both semester and summer programs provide students with an enhanced awareness of Provençal culture while giving them a unique and unparalleled French experience.


Students take classes in French through the French Honors Program. Additionally students can study Art, Art History, Business, Communication Studies, History, and Political Science. More information on courses can be found HERE.
