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, Italy, 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, Italy, 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,

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.”

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.

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 French hosts. 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 known as l’Atelier Marchutz, a light-filled space in the countryside of Aix near the famed Chateau Noir and Mte. Ste. Victoire. It was 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 l’Atelier Marchutz 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 l’Atelier Marchutz 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:

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."

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, 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.”

Paris

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 J-Term programs and as part of an IAU-sponsored course trips.

TERMS

Fall Semester, Spring Semester, Academic Year, Summer, January Term, Custom Programs

ACADEMICS

The Barcelona Center's academic offerings give students the flexibility to enroll in region-specific courses that satisfy core curriculum, major, and minor requirements at their home institution.

Open to any students who are looking for more integrated courses, the IAU Barcelona Center takes advantage of the city’s prominent architectural styles and its size to provide robust offerings of seminar and studio courses in design, architecture, and urbanism. The program offers a series of content courses and those that apply real, technical application led by our faculty who are professional architects. The best way to be global is to enhance the virtues of the locality. Barcelona is best suited for this program given that UNESCO has declared it the world capital of architecture for the year 2026. In this sense, Barcelona serves as a world reference in these fields. This program and the related courses are also open to IAU university partners who wish to create customized opportunities for their faculty and students.

CERTIFICATE Global Wine Studies Certificate

This unique opportunity gives students hands-on experience in the wine industry through focused study of wine production as well as the business side of the trade.

INTERNSHIPS & CONSULTING PROJECTS

Adapting to a new culture involves not only learning the language and customs, but also gaining a better understanding of the work environment and how methods and habits may differ from one's home setting. IAU provides access to internships and consulting projects with a wide range of businesses and organizations throughout the city of Barcelona. Fields include:

Given IAU’s many connections in the local community, more internship and consulting project opportunities are added every term.

The Castilian spoken here is the purest in the country and is ideal for students studying language. With some of the most prestigious universities located in the city limits, Madrid is an intellectual mecca.

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.

Tangier

“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.”

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.

Tangier sits on the northern tip of Morocco, just eight miles across the Strait of Gibraltar from Spain. It has served 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.

CITY Florence

iau.edu/academics/florence

The bustling city of Florence, or Firenze, was the epicenter of Europe’s Renaissance period and boasts a rich history of cultural influence and forward thinking. In this capital of Italy’s Tuscany region, students will be exposed to some of the greatest artistic treasures in the world, all while taking classes in disciplines from economics to international relations to dance. Once the intellectual and cultural heart of Europe, Florence is an essential destination for creative minds.

Page 37 ITALY
Florence

“My host invited me into the family with open arms. From the day I arrived through my departure, I felt so welcomed and a part of the household. Between enjoying warm homecooked meals to going out on the town with my host siblings, I was as integrated into the local lifestyle, language, and culture as I could have ever imagined.”

Page 38 Flagship Campuses | Morocco

Florence

The IAU Florence program offers students the opportunity to complete coursework in one of the most historic, cultural, and beautiful cities in the world. Florence is considered the symbol of the Renaissance and is lined with cobblestone streets, dotted with open-air markets, and filled with artistic masterpieces and stunning architecture. Students can spend their days exploring the works of Michelangelo, Botticelli, Benvenuto, Cellini, and Donatello at some of the world’s most famous museums and marveling at the many iconic landmarks, such as the Duomo and Palazzo Vecchio, that define this Tuscan city.

All courses are complemented by local field studies around Florence and the Tuscany region where faculty use the city and surrounding area as the classroom. Such field studies may include guest lectures by local artists, academics, and business owners or visits to important sites, local museums, companies, and non-profit organizations as well as excursions to neighboring towns.

The campus is housed in a 16th century palazzo that has been restored and converted into an educational high-tech space equipped with 16 classrooms, study spaces, computer lab, library, and performance spaces for dance and music. The campus is in the heart of the historical city center of Florence between the Piazza del Duomo and Piazza San Marco.

“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.”

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, Italy, Spain, and Morocco. These hands-on practical experiences provide students with the opportunity to learn professional skills in an international collaborative setting.

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 crosscultural 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, Italy, Spain, and Morocco with the aim to build their professional network through industry-specific training. While fluency in the local language is not required, some placements may require some knowledge of these languages while others may require more advanced levels.

Page 46
Custom Experiences | Internships & Consulting Projects
"Working for Planet of the Grapes, a sustainable start-up in Europe, showed me how newer companies benefit from operating within the EU by utilizing grants, funding, and collaborative initiatives. Interning abroad also highlighted certain cultural differences involving business operations. Overall, I am so grateful for the opportunity to intern in France and broaden my understanding of the global business world."
– Alessandra G. - Fairfield University

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 47 CUSTOM EXPERIENCES

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, 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

Page 48

Other benefits of IAU’s faculty-led and custom programs include:

FLEXIBLE PROGRAM DURATION

Programs typically run from one week to a full semester

VARIETY OF LOCATION OPTIONS

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

ABILITY TO SUPPORT ANY DISCIPLINE

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, human rights, intelligence and information operations, international business, internships, Islamic art, law and politics, leadership, organic chemistry, post-colonial studies, Spanish language/culture, 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, working on book or research projects and collaborating 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 all of IAU’s program locations.

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 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.”

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 across all program locations.

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.

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.
