An all French-language environment and on-going training in cross-cultural mediation is combined with profound cultural and linguistic integration, and includes one week of on-site study in Fez, Morocco.

The city is a crossroads: ancient ruins & modern architecture, French & North African cultures, urban landscapes & stunning natural landscapes. With its cultural and religious pluralism, Marseille inspires true international education in reaching across cultures for greater knowledge and understanding.
