About the Program
IAU’s Marchutz School of Art offers a holistic, interdisciplinary approach to studio art for students from a range of art backgrounds and experiences. This program is designed for students at all ability levels; faculty at Marchutz consider each student a working artist, regardless of level of experience, and provide opportunities for studio practice, museum/site study, and critical dialogue. Off-site visits enhance the studio art curriculum and enhance immersion into local culture. Semester students also take a French language course at their ability level; summer students may choose to take a language course.

- All Levels
You'll enroll in 1 art criticism/aesthetics course, 1 drawing course, 1 painting course, 1 art history elective course, and 1 French language course appropriate to your language level. Courses meet for 45-90 contact hours/3-6 credits. You may earn up to 15 credits (up to 225 contact hours).
Classes meet Monday-Friday. Active learning components required by your courses may be scheduled for Fridays.
Before you leave for Aix, you'll submit an IAU course selection form and an IAU language questionnaire that estimates your language knowledge. An IAU advisor will evaluate your language questionnaire and transcript and either enroll you in courses or schedule a language placement exam that you'll take before your program starts. After you arrive on-site, French faculty will determine if you're the in correct language level; you'll have two weeks to add/drop if necessary.
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 university 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 host institution has offered the following courses in the past. Please note that course listings may not be finalized until the start of the term; we’ll post an updated list when the host institution finalizes its offerings.
