Aix-en-Provence, France: Fall 2019 Course Offerings – The School of Humanities and Social Sciences at IAU

All students MUST get a total of 8 classes approved by their home institution, in case of changes in course availability or schedule conflicts. That way, if a class is full or cancelled, or if 2 of the classes you want to take meet at the same time, you’ll already have back-up classes that you know your school will accept. When you pre-register for classes (this happens after you’re accepted), you will have to list a total of 8 possible classes on your registration form, in order of preference.

Students at The School of Humanities and Social Sciences take 5, 3-credit courses per semester of their choosing; at least one of these must be a French language course. Students who have never taken French before must enroll in FRE 101-102 (6 credits).

All courses with course number FRE are taught in French. All other courses are taught in English, unless otherwise noted.

Classes are assigned on a first come, first served basis, so it is best to apply early!

Early Start Program

ASA is pleased to offer an Early Start Program in conjunction with our Fall and Spring Semester programs in Aix-en-Provence. The Early Start Program begins one week before the semester starts and is designed to help students at any French level get the most out of their semester. Early Start is an opportunity for students to brush up on their French in a fun and relaxed environment. In addition, you’ll have an extra week to settle in and get adjusted to life in France. If you haven’t taken French in a while or are just feeling unsure about your language ability, the Early Start program will help you feel more comfortable. Students who participate in Early Start will earn 1 credit, consisting of 15 in-class hours.
