Summer 2019 in the French Riviera

What better way to dive into French culture and language than by spending a summer in the heart of the Cote d’Azur?

In addition to French language study for all levels, students get the chance to explore another topic of their choice taught in English.

Take a look at the exciting seminars offered in Nice:

Art History

In this largely field-based course, Professor Michel Remy offers guided visits to local art institutions, including the Chagall Museum, the Matisse Museum, and the MAMAC, to illustrate the history of art from Impressionism through Surrealism. 

International Relations

In this course, students study current events relating to war and terrorism, diplomacy, refugee status, human rights, and aid for the developing world in order to think critically about the arguments made in international politics. 

Studio Art

Designed for students of every level, this course focuses on the essential techniques of sketching and painting, and takes advantage of the many picturesque neighborhoods in Nice and the natural beauty of the French Riviera. 

In addition to choosing a seminar, students also have the chance to participate in the following optional workshops.

French Cooking

In this workshop, students gain hands-on experience in a professional kitchen under the guidance of internationally recognized chef Jean Montagard. From croissants to créme brulee, this course will introduce students to the delicious and daring world of French cooking.

Photography

Nice provides an ideal setting for students to pursue their passion for photography and apply their own artistic touch in the digital darkroom. This course covers the fundamentals of compositions, use of manual features on a DLSR camera, and use of photo editing software to conceive and create images with beauty, purpose, intent and meaning.
