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

In case of changes in course availability or schedule conflicts, students planning to take 1 class must get a total of 2 classes approved by their academic advisor.  Students planning to take 2 classes must have a total of 4 classes approved.  Students planning to take 3 classes must have a total of 6 classes approved.  That way, if a class is full or cancelled, or if 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 double the number of classes you actually plan to take, again, in case of cancellations or schedule conflicts.

The School of Humanities and Social Sciences offers 3 different summer sessions.  Session A is the 6-week session; Session B is a 3-week session taking place during the first 3 weeks of Session A, and Session C is a 3-week session taking place during the last 3 weeks of Session A.  Some courses run the full 6-week Summer A session; others meet for just the first 3 weeks (Summer B) or the last 3 weeks (Summer C).  Students attending Session A can take classes from ANY of the 3 summer sessions.

Students attending one of the 3-week sessions (Summer B or C) take a maximum of 3 credits (1 class).  Students attending the 6-week session (Summer A) must take 6-9 credits (Summer A pricing varies depending on whether you take 6 credits or 9 credits).  Example: On the Class Schedule linked below, you will see that classes are marked either Summer A, Summer B, or Summer C. Students attending Session A  (6 weeks) could take one class marked “Summer B,” which would take place during the first 3 weeks, followed by a class marked “Summer C,” which would take place during the last 3 weeks. Or, you could take one class marked “Summer A,” which would be spread out over the full 6 weeks, plus one additional class from Summer A, Summer B, or Summer C.

The French Honors Program is available ONLY during Summer A (6-week session).

It is not mandatory to take a French language class. Classes are worth 3 credits each, unless otherwise noted on the schedule linked below.

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