For an additional fee, intermediate and higher French speakers have the option of choosing from four unique options to practice French in a specific field: Business French, French Political Life, Art & Literature, and French Culture & Civilization.
Enroll in a 4-week session in June, July, or both. You'll take 1 language course at your level; intermediate and above speakers may choose up to 2 additional elective courses for an additional fee.
Language courses meet for a total of 60 contact hours/4 credits. Optional electives meet for 6 contact hours/.5 credits. You may earn 4-5 credits (up to 72 contact hours) per session; if you enroll in both sessions, you may earn 8-10 credits (up to 144 contact hours).
Language courses meet daily, Monday-Friday; electives meet three days per week.
You’ll take a language placement exam after you arrive in France. Course registration will take place after you receive the results of your language placement exam. It is in your best interest to have multiple alternative courses approved by your home university prior to your departure due to course availabilities. To ensure that you receive credit for the language level you place into, have your home school pre-approve courses at several levels before you leave for France. Please consult with your academic advisor at your home university on credit pre-approval guidelines.
The Centre International d’Antibes provides French instruction to more than 5,000 students each year. Set in a Provençal mansion just steps from Antibes’ Old Town, this award-winning private institution offers French classes to all levels of language learners.
When you study abroad in the French Riviera, you can choose standard CEA housing—in an apartment or homestay—or arrange your own independent housing. CEA housing assignments are based on availability and confirmation date; we make every effort to match your housing requests, but we can’t guarantee housing preferences.
