It is located in a restored 17th century chapel. Courses are comparable to those offered by most liberal arts colleges in the
Most students will select courses from The School of Humanities & Social Sciences at IAU College. Students take five 3-credit courses for 15 transferrable units towards their USD degree. All students must take at least one class instructed in French. Students choose courses from Aix's many offerings that best meet their individual academic and personal needs.
Students with an advanced proficiency in French may elect to enroll in the French Honors Program (available fall and spring semesters) or classes with local French students at the Université d'Aix-Marseille (only during the spring semester).
See Pre-approved Aix-en-Provence Course Listings. If there is a course you are interested in taking not listed on the pre-approved list, please contact Ali Droster, email@example.com.
Students also have the opportunity to enroll in an internship course. Please view the following link to learn more about the internships offered in Aix-en-Provence.

Students are housed in home stays with local families. Living in a French home is considered the best form of housing; it provides an introduction into the community and is a great incentive to learning the language. IAU's hosts are carefully chosen and many have hosted American students for several years.
EXCURSIONS & ACTIVITIES
Included in the IAU program are 2-3 excursions per semester/summer term for all students, which vary by program. Excursions are incredible opportunities for students to expand their understanding of the region in which they reside, or even those further out. The cost of the excursions is included in the IAU program fee. As such, students are strongly encouraged to participate.
