Program Description:

Learn about France’s growing diversity through IES Abroad’s Multiculturalism & Immigration in the Mediterranean. During your 6 weeks in Nice, you’ll enroll in our required, 3-credit French course, as well as a second, 3-credit course in Economics, Political Science, Religion or Sociology, for a total of six credits. Courses are taught at the IES Abroad Center, which is situated in the heart of downtown Nice and features a library, computer lab, and rooftop terrace.

While in Nice, you’ll have the option to live in fully-equipped apartments with other IES Abroad students or to live in homestays in Nice or the surrounding areas. Outside of the classroom, enjoy field trips and course-related excursions to discover the culture and traditions of France and beyond. Explore the French Riviera, visit the Roman ruins on Cimiez Hill, and walk the Medieival cobblestone streets of this historic city. All of this – and more – awaits you in Nice.
