France: The School of Humanities and Social Sciences, Aix-en-Provence


Founded in 1958, the Institute for American Universities (IAU) is one of the oldest and largest international education programs in Europe. At IAU's School of Humanities and Social Sciences, students from all majors may take courses and earn between twelve and eighteen credit hours per semester. Students find courses in subject areas such as psychology, political science, comparative literature, art history, studio art, business, economics, philosophy, education, history, archeology, civilization, theatre, government, and the French language from the beginning to the advanced levels. Courses are taught in both English and French. No previous knowledge of French is required; however, all students are required to take at least one French course. Beginners are required to enroll in six units of French language. All courses are taught by French faculty from local universities and by adjunct faculty from the UK and US.


IAU College is located in Aix-en-Provence on the Mediterranean coast. Aix-en-Provence is one of the major academic, legal, and cultural centers of France with easy access to Paris, Geneva, London and other major European cities.


The College Consortium for International Studies (CCIS), a partnership of colleges and universities—two and four year, large and small, public and private, domestic and foreign—encompasses the broad spectrum of international higher education. CCIS members sponsor a variety of programs, notably study abroad programs and professional development seminars for faculty and administrators, which are designed to enhance international/intercultural perspectives within the academic community.
