Dear Students, Faculty, and Colleagues, It is my pleasure to welcome you to IAU. As the oldest American Institute in France, we have been educating students in the arts, humanities, and social sciences since 1957. During your studies in France, Spain, Morocco, or on one of IAU’s traveling seminars, our faculty and staff will strive to provide you with a first-rate learning environment that is challenging, yet supportive of your academic and personal interests. We want you to succeed while you are abroad, and equally important, we want to help guide and prepare you for the global world. As you will learn while reading this catalogue, our college is growing and evolving in exciting new ways. In addition to our semester and summer programs in France, Spain, and Morocco, IAU offers numerous multi-city and multicountry traveling seminars in Europe and North Africa each year during the January term. In response to growing interest in long-term international education among our alumni, a degree-granting institution – The American College of the Mediterranean (ACM) – was created and now serves as IAU’s parent institution. ACM began offering degree programs in 2015, which places our study abroad students side-by-side with peers pursuing bachelor’s degrees with eleven majors from which to choose as well as seven master’s degrees in the arts, business, humanities, and social sciences. We are also pleased to announce that with the advent of these degree programs, ACM has been granted candidate for accreditation status by the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE). As the study abroad institute of ACM, IAU plays an incredibly important role in encouraging U.S. students to study abroad. Each student at IAU will have the opportunity to travel and learn inside and outside of the classroom with some of the most talented faculty in international education, as the synthesis of academic and experiential learning informs the pedagogical spirit of IAU. All courses connect the site specificity of each country with the important linguistic and cultural heritage of the Mediterranean. Our faculty is dedicated to social issues across the curriculum. Many of our faculty are former diplomats, artists, journalists, practitioners of conflict resolution, and business professionals who have dedicated their lives to educating the future leaders of our world. Students at IAU are thus challenged to disentangle the complexities of racial identity, class, and gender segregation in Europe and North Africa. In its over 65 years of existence, IAU has built an alumni roster surpassing 25,000 students; it has played a major part in preparing its students for their role in the present-day world to work in such fields as accounting, art, business, counseling, diplomacy, engineering, finance, health care, information technology, international education, interpreting/translation, law, linguistics, marketing, psychology, social work, and so many more. It is our hope that your participation at IAU will be just as fruitful. We look forward to welcoming you soon to one of the many programs available at IAU.

Sincerely, Carl Jubran, PhD President

Opportunities in the Provençal city of Aix-en-Provence and the French capital of Paris offer students access to traditional French culture in historic, intimate, and distinct settings. Both cities are meccas for French art, culture, fashion, gastronomy, history, and architecture. Students will appreciate Aix-en-Provence for its rich history and Mediterranean-inspired culture, and Paris for its culturally, politically, and economically dynamic options for studying and exploring alongside other French and international students.

“I had the opportunity to interact with my surroundings in a more intentional way. I visited museums, galleries, and cultural venues. I delved into a part of the world I was unused to, and found within it people whose narratives interlinked with mine and inspired further narratives.” - Muhua Y., Harvard University

FRANCE

Aix-en-Provence IAU’s flagship campus is in Aix-en-Provence, a charming university town located in the southern region of France. The city of Aix (pronounced like the letter “X”) provides traditional French culture in an intimate setting, while offering the charm and elegance of a large metropolis. The historic town is known for its beloved painter, Paul Cézanne, who painted the surrounding rolling landscape. Local field studies and cultural activities during both semester and summer programs provide students with an enhanced awareness of Provençal culture while giving them a unique and unparalleled French experience.

Page 15


SPECIALIZED PROGRAMS The French Honors Program This immersive and intensive language and culture experience is designed for high-achieving students of French who seek a challenging program that accentuates dialogue and reflection across cultural and literary themes. All French Honors students take their courses at IAU’s Centre d’Études Françaises (CEF), where only French is spoken, and live with host families. Students earn a Certificate in French Honors Abroad upon successful completion.

Core Art Programs The Marchutz Core Art Program offers an immersive experience in painting, drawing, art history, and art theory, and includes intensive critical dialogue and aesthetic seminars. Field Studies in Paris, Giverny, and the Vaucluse enrich the program as does the studio, a light-filled space in the countryside of Aix near the famed Chateau Noir and Mte. Ste. Victoire. It was Campuses | France | Aix-En-Provence

formerly the studio of Leo Marchutz, a German-born artist who was drawn to Aix in 1931 to study the works of Cézanne and Van Gogh.

The Mediterranean Core Art Program is a cross-cultural program which combines studio art, art history, museum studies, language, and culture. It is open to students of all majors and backgrounds. Classes take place on the IAU campus in Aix-en-Provence and field studies take the students to sites in Spain and Morocco. The program also uses the School of Art studio as well as other facilities and locations in Aix.

IAU’s new vineyard, planted by Wine Studies Coordinator Anthony Triolo, produces Cinsault, Grenache, and Syrah grapes.

Global Wine Studies Certificate Available to students with or without previous knowledge of wine or wine studies, this program covers the complex industry of wine, paving the way for a potential future in the global wine business. Students gain hands-on experience thanks to IAU’s own vineyard near The School of Art's studio and by leveraging the vast history and resources available to them in Europe’s immense wine industry.

INTERNSHIPS AND CONSULTING PROJECTS Adapting to a new culture also involves gaining a better understanding of the work environment and how methods and habits may differ from the home setting. Students can choose from a variety of these hands-on experiences: Commercial Development • Community Management • Communications • Education • Event Planning • Human Resources • Law • Library Science • Logistics - Purchasing - Finance • Marketing • Museum Science • Public Relations • Research • Sales • Social Media • Theatre • Tourism • Translation • Web Development Thanks to IAU’s connections in the local community, more internship and consulting project opportunities are added every term. IAU will seek out additional internships and consulting projects on a case-by-case basis.

“The Marchutz Program encourages its students to find their artistic vision, and pushes them to portray their view of the world through art. I immediately felt at ease in the studio, even when surrounded by artists with far more experience than me. There was a certain comfort in the studio, even in the most challenging moments. It was the first time I truly felt that I was an artist." – Ciara R., Saint Mary’s College of California Page 17


FIELD STUDIES & STUDY TOURS Field studies and study tours enable students to expand their understanding of Provence and beyond. Field studies are academic day trips or overnight stays associated with an academic course, while study tours are extracurricular trips offered to all IAU students, regardless of chosen academic program. In either case, students travel to areas in the region that may include Arles, Isle sur la Sorgue, Fontaine de Vaucluse, Les Baux de Provence, Avignon, Marseille, and Nîmes. Some courses include field studies to other cities in France, Europe, and North Africa, such as Paris,

Campuses | France | Aix-En-Provence

Geneva, Brussels, or Tangier.

STUDENT LIFE In addition to what the lively city of Aix offers, IAU students have opportunities to participate in weekly lectures, openmic nights, cooking classes, language partner exchanges with local students, talent shows, wine tastings, and other cultural events and connect with local students from the nearby French universities. Housing A French homestay is considered the best form of housing because it provides an immediate introduction to life in this new place. It is an incomparable opportunity for those who seek knowledge that is neither superficial nor secondhand. It provides an introduction into the community and is a great incentive for learning the language. IAU’s hosts come from a cross section of society; they belong to no professional or social milieu, but all are carefully chosen, and many have hosted American students for several years and even over multiple generations.

“I learned to see the world through a non-American lens, and it was extremely eye-opening for me. It was definitely the most worthwhile experience I’ve ever had. There’s nothing about my college career that I loved more than my experience at IAU.” – Manar Z., Baylor University Page 18


FRANCE

Paris

IAU President Carl Jubran and Students Visit Notre Dame Cathedral During the January Term Program. The popularity of Paris as a study abroad destination, along with IAU’s numerous contacts and partners there make it an attractive option in IAU’s portfolio. IAU offers students the opportunity to direct-enroll in reputable partner programs in Paris, France. Paris, whose influence upon French culture is enormous, is the ideal city in which students can learn and perfect their French. Students also visit Paris on several J-Term programs, could have it included as part of a custom/faculty-led program itinerary, and may visit as part of an IAU-sponsored course trip.

Tangier iau.edu/academics/tangier

Situated in northwest Africa, Morocco is a gateway between Europe, Africa, and the Arab world. Given IAU’s focus on Mediterranean Studies, Morocco is a logical location for programming, including summer options in Tangier. Other IAU programs, including J-Terms, use Moroccan cities as their backdrop including Marrakesh, Casablanca, and Rabat. Morocco represents an important destination where students can better understand its historical, cultural, and religious impact, as well as its ties to Europe and beyond.

“I truly believe that one of the most profound ways to grow as an individual is to surround yourself with people who are somehow different from you. While studying at IAU, I met and got to know other students from Australia, South Korea, Brazil, Lithuania, and France. I spent my days with professors who earned multiple PhDs. I learned how to say “hello” and “thank you” in 14 languages and I became conversationally fluent in French. These are experiences I never would have had were it not for studying abroad with IAU.” -Claire G., University of San Diego

Tangier Through a collaboration with the University of New England (UNE), IAU offers summer and January Term programs in the vibrant and historic city of Tangier, Morocco. The program is held on UNE's new, palatial campus in the heart of the city and has been specifically designed to support study abroad for students in the sciences. The campus boasts state-of-the-art lab facilities, including an organic chemistry lab, microbiology lab, and neuroscience lab. Additional campus resources include residence halls, sports facilities, a library, study spaces, and a cafeteria.

as an important gateway between Europe, Africa, and the Arab world for many centuries. Tangier's status as an international port city and an economic hub of Morocco draws cultural visitors and business interests alike. Students in Tangier will experience firsthand the diverse cultural history of Morocco and its complex identity and society through academic study tours, site-specific learning, and the opportunity to engage with the local community through participation in service learning and internships.

Custom Experiences for Students & Faculty


“We have come to deeply appreciate the support that IAU provides to students and faculty. From their visits to our Muhlenberg campus for pre-arrival information sessions, to their warm welcome in Aix-en-Provence and for our students in their host families, to the many opportunities and experiences they helped us custom design for our students, IAU has gone above and beyond our expectations. As Resident Fellows and as Directors of a custom study abroad program, we were able to offer our students an enriching experience in Aix-en-Provence and immerse ourselves in a vibrant intellectual and artistic community. They have helped us build a lasting partnership between Muhlenberg College and IAU, one that we hope will continue well into the future.” -Dr. Eileen McEwan, Assoc. Professor of French; Dir., French/Francophone Studies Program and Dr. Paul McEwan, Professor of Media & Communication and Film Studies, Muhlenberg College

PREVIOUS JANUARY TERMS Since their inception in 2012, IAU has run fourteen different January term programs which vary in theme, location, and discipline. Many were created out of student demand and interest. Not all are offered each year, but should a partner institution so desire, they may request IAU to operate a previously run J-Term for their students (faculty are welcome to join as well). Those that have been offered in the past, in addition to the current J-Terms listed on the previous pages, include: • French Language & Culture | Aix-en-Provence, France | French • International Business | France, Morocco, Belgium | Business, Economics Management, Marketing • Museum Studies | The Netherlands, France, Spain | Art, Art History, Museum Studies • North African Studies | Morocco and Tunisia | History, Political Science, Religious Studies, Sociology • Photography | The Netherlands, France, Spain | Art, Art History, History, European Studies • Psychology of Peace & Conflict | France, Spain, Morocco, U.K. (Gibraltar) | Cross-Cultural Studies, Psychology, Sociology • Spanish Culture & Society | Spain | Art History, Cross-Cultural Studies, History

Internships & Consulting Projects IAU’s Internships and Consulting Projects draw from IAU's expertise in experiential-based learning while taking advantage of IAU’s wide network of professional contacts in France, Spain, and Morocco. These hands-on practical experiences provide students with the opportunity to learn professional skills in an international collaborative setting.

CUSTOM EXPERIENCES

INTERNSHIPS Internships are designed to immerse students in a multicultural professional space. A special effort is placed on helping students develop the skills required to enter the professional world and navigate cross-cultural entrepreneurial environments. The internships are complemented by an academic component, which guides students through the experience and helps them strategically reflect on challenges, accomplishments, and personal and professional development. Students are intentionally placed based on interests and skillsets in organizations in France, Spain, and Morocco with the aim to build their professional network through industry-specific training. While fluency in French or Spanish is not required, some placements may require some knowledge of these languages while others may require more advanced levels. Page 45


Custom Experiences | Internships & Consulting Projects

CONSULTING PROJECTS Students will engage in an industry-specific consulting project led by a professor in partnership with international organizations, where the organizations present a problem for the students to solve. In this interdisciplinary experience, students work in groups to apply strategic consulting practices to provide recommendations on how the organization might solve the issue or problem presented to them. At the end of the course, students share their recommendations with the organization through a professional presentation. Examples of previous internship and consulting project placement include: • Euro-Meditérranée Urban Development Agency: The mission is to design, develop, and build a sustainable Mediterranean "city of tomorrow” in the Aix-Marseille-Provence metropolis. Students support the agency with research in the areas of international trade and foreign investment. • Creative Talents Worldwide: This organization specializes in content marketing, online media campaigns, branding, research, and business development for top companies in the luxury, travel, design, and fashion industries. Students gain experience in marketing, communications, and public relations as they complete this consulting project. • Casanet: Based in Morocco, Casanet is a digital services company that specializes in creating networks and systems, IT solutions, cloud services, and online services. Consulting projects are available in digital marketing and community management. • PEMB – Pla Estratègic Metropolità de Barcelona: PEMB is a private, non-profit association promoted by the Barcelona City Council and the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona that identifies the needs and future goals of the metropolitan area across a variety of markets and sectors. Consulting project roles focus on providing research and analysis for a specific market or sector of the city in Barcelona, such as commercial aviation or the future of the auto industry. • Consulting Project in Sustainable Fashion Manufacturing: The objective of this consulting project involves launching a company based on the “slow fashion model” alongside a professional consultant in the sustainable fashion industry. This model focuses on local providers, use of local and sustainable materials, use of original and local designs, and sustainable production. Page 46


Virtual Programs IAU’s Virtual Experiences extend the Internships and Consulting Projects to the virtual space, allowing students to participate in these experiences from anywhere in the world. Since these experiences are virtual, placement opportunities extend beyond the Mediterranean region to include the United Kingdom as well as countries in Asia and Latin America. VIRTUAL PROGRAMS Virtual Global Internships Virtual Consulting Projects Please see Internships & Consulting Projects section for descriptions.

CUSTOM EXPERIENCES

“I was proud with not only what I was able to produce for the company, but also how much I grew over the course of the internship. It was wonderful receiving positive feedback on the videos I created and on my translation of documents, as it showed that the time I dedicated to them was worthwhile. I was surprised to see how much my French speaking skills had improved in such a short amount of time.”


Faculty-Led & Custom Programs IAU welcomes faculty-led and custom programs since they enable professors to not only create an international opportunity that meets their needs and those of their students but does so in a way that is affordable and easy to organize and manage. In addition to creating in-person programming abroad, IAU also partners with universities and faculty to design high-impact custom virtual international experiences, which provide students with intercultural experiences from the comfort of their own home. As a non-profit institution, IAU’s goal is focused more on the student and faculty experience and less on profit margins, leading to program development grounded in a carefully designed,

Custom Experiences | Faculty-Led & Custom Programs

high-quality custom program. Short-term faculty-led and custom programs offer great educational value. However, they also require tremendous time and energy to organize. By taking advantage of IAU’s existing infrastructure, including its facilities, student support services, and longstanding experience administering programs, students can participate in quality programs without overtaxing financial resources. Faculty can work with IAU staff to create a personalized itinerary that will ensure students have a memorable experience abroad. IAU faculty-led and custom programs allow colleges and universities to: • Expand their study abroad offerings • Give faculty the opportunity to lead student groups overseas • Present students with flexible study abroad options that suit their academic plans • Attract students, who otherwise may not be interested to study abroad because of their familiarity with the faculty member leading the group as well as their fellow classmates • Tap into IAU’s existing infrastructure for classrooms, study tours, and homestays without putting that work on the faculty member IAU can provide the following services, each customized to meet specific needs: • Homestay accommodations for students including lodging, daily breakfast, and six dinners per week • Study tours and day trips to enhance the course curriculum • Classroom space and access to IAU facilities • Access to IAU Wi-Fi and library • Panel discussions and guest lectures from specialists in their field • Comprehensive international insurance • Enrollment, pre-departure, and on-site student support services • Assistance with travel itineraries around the Mediterranean region, including transportation and hotel reservations

LOCATION

Programs typically run from one week to a full semester

Partners use IAU’s global campuses and networks located throughout France, Spain, and Morocco

DISCIPLINES A wide array of academic options exists as partner faculty have run programs at IAU sites in archaeology, architecture, art, art history, business, business French, communication studies, creative writing, cross-cultural studies, diversity studies, French language/culture, global studies, human development intelligence and information operations, international business, internships, Islamic art, law and politics, and studio art/sculpture.

Resident Fellows Program OVERVIEW The Resident Fellows Program at IAU is designed for visiting professors on sabbatical leave from their home institutions. Fellows can integrate into IAU's existing academic infrastructures in France and Spain which include faculty, facilities, library, and archives. Many of the past Fellows worked on books or research projects and collaborated with IAU professors and students on various projects and learning activities. Fellows do not teach at IAU. However, in exchange for the fellowship, they are asked to provide one or two guest lectures to IAU students in their area of expertise. Faculty interested in teaching should consider IAU's faculty-led/custom opportunities. The Resident Fellows Program is available at IAU's Aix-en-Provence, France and Barcelona, Spain campuses. ELIGIBILITY IAU welcomes applications from faculty at participating U.S. partner institutions. Partner institutions include colleges and universities with signed memoranda of understanding with IAU. IAU will occasionally accept nominations from distinguished faculty from Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa. Ultimately the deliberations and final decision made by the Selection Committee are primarily based on the research project and the overall connection to IAU and our commitment to the languages, cultures, and history of the Mediterranean.

The American College of the Mediterranean (ACM) IAU is the study abroad institute of The American College of the Mediterranean (ACM), a degree-granting institution that uses the same facilities, faculty, staff, student support services, and resources as IAU does on the Aix-enProvence, France campus. The mission of ACM is to provide excellence in international education, inspire intercultural awareness, and prepare students for success in a global community through the study of European and Mediterranean history, languages, cultures, and contemporary issues. It does so through a unique combination of courses, internships, and curricula that combine to create American-style undergraduate and graduate degree programs in an international and cross-cultural setting. ACCREDITATION The American College of the Mediterranean has been granted candidacy status by the New England Commission of Higher Education. Candidacy is not accreditation nor does it assure eventual accreditation. Candidacy is a formal affiliation with the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE). It indicates that the institution has achieved initial recognition and is progressing toward accreditation. ACM has completed the self-study phase. The self-study report and current updates on ACM’s accreditation status can be found at www.acmfrance.org/about/accreditation. UNDERGRADUATE

“The IAU diversity scholarship made studying in France for a full academic year a reality for me. I spent the fall semester in Aix in the French Honors program, followed by a "Europe and the Islamic World" January term class that went to Morocco and Spain, and then in the spring I took courses in international relations and Arabic (a new passion, spurred by my time in Morocco). While in Aix, I sat as a panelist for professors from U.S. universities speaking about diversity in studying abroad and was able to share my experiences. I felt so supported by IAU.” -Marissa A., Brandeis University

Board of Trustees IAU’s degree-granting institution, The American College of the Mediterranean, is a non-profit governed by a Board of Trustees. The current board has nineteen members, nine of whom are IAU alumni. This governing board's fundamental responsibility is to chart the institution's course and ensure that it has the resources it needs to fulfill its mission. The board is responsible for the appointment of the president and oversight of their duties. The board supports the president to ensure the institution’s engagement in sound strategic planning. The board also has a unique fiduciary role in finance and budgeting, in endowment and investment management, and in preserving and expanding physical resources including its campuses in France, Spain, and Morocco.

College Advisory Board IAU’s College Advisory Board (CAB) is made up of faculty and administrators from partner institutions who provide counsel on the development and articulation of IAU’s academic programs in France, Spain, and Morocco. The CAB offers best-practice insight on matters including assessment, student learning outcomes, program review, and academic integrity across all programs. During its annual on-site fall meeting at either its Aix-en-Provence or Barcelona campus, CAB members review new initiatives, curricula, and a variety of aspects of student academic experience. CAB members also benefit from sharing and reporting on the trends at their respective campuses. MEMBERS

Institutional Partners IAU students come from a wide variety of institutions. Formal partnerships with IAU are not required for institutions to enroll their students at IAU. However, partnerships enable institutions to send their own faculty to lead a group of students abroad, allow faculty to participate in IAU’s Resident Fellows Program, and provide the opportunity for students to have a streamlined application process.
