American University Center of Provence, Aix en Provence:
The American University Center of Provence located in Aix en Provence in the region of Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, department of Bouches-du-Rhône in southeastern France is proud to offer for-credit, high-level French immerson programs in the south of France: Fall, Spring and Summer options. The Programs focus on French, Liberal Arts, Painting, International Relations, Arabic and Cross-Cultural Communication. Challenging, comprehensive and innovative, the Aix academic program motivates learning both inside and outside the classroom. The graduate level Master's program, in collaboration with the Institut d'Etudes Politiques, offers an intercultural approach to the design and management of non-governmental organizations. Ensuring a motivating interdisciplinary learning experience, French Practicum, the cornerstone of AUCP academics, brings together the curricular with the extracurricular, combining classwork with experiential learning including homestay and community service.
Formally recognized by the French national Ministry of Education, the American University Center of Provence provides a high quality academic and cultural experience for American college and university students.
At the heart of international education, two full-immersion French programs combine an all French-speaking environment, individual homestay, language partner, personal interest activity, and community service with rigorous course work taught by French university faculty.
Quality Course Work in French
Taught on-site according to U.S. university academic credit standards by a dedicated group of tenured French university faculty and local professionals.
A unique, nationally renowned core program of experiential learning opening doors daily into natural, direct contact with the French, their language, and their culture.
While all AUCP course work is related intimately to each student’s personal cross-cultural experience, the mandatory course French Practicum provides an essential link between academic work and direct French cultural experience.
Individual French Homestay
Life with a carefully selected French family, one student per family, an unparalleled opportunity for lasting personal and cultural connection.
Community Service Requirement
Giving something of yourself every week to your French host culture in the generous give-and-take of true cultural exchange.
Selective, Personal Programs
Warm and human in scale, thus encouraging the academic, cultural, and personal progress of each individual participant.
Small Class Size
The small average class size of AUCP courses makes for close personal interaction and guidance. Courses demand considerable outside work and follow-up. Regular attendance is required. While mid-semester vacations allow for sensible traveling, the focus is upon serious academic work and in-depth involvement in the local community.
AIX-EN-PROVENCE: The French city even Parisians name as their favorite. Intimate, yet cosmopolitan, Aix combines stately historical beauty and a lively, modern spirit.
