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.

Founded in 1958, IAU College is one of France’s oldest and largest education abroad institutions. Courses in the humanities, social sciences, and fine arts are taught in your choice of French or English; you’ll attend alongside students from around the world. 

When you study abroad in Aix-en-Provence, you can choose standard CEA housing or arrange your own independent 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.

Program Structure

Choose a 2- or 3-course program. Students in the 2-course program enroll in 1 art criticism/aesthetics course and 1 painting & drawing course; students in the 3-course program also enroll in 1 elective course. Courses meet for 45 contact hours/3 credits. You may earn a total of 6-9 credits (up to 90-135 contact hours).

Classes meet daily in the morning, Monday-Friday. Site visits are scheduled every other 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 . If you're taking a language elective, you'll take a language placement exam after you arrive in Aix-en-Provence. You will be enrolled into courses based on their availability. 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.

Excursions

Get out and explore! Excursions are offered for most semester, year, and summer programs*. Semester students are typically offered between two to three excursions and summer study students are typically offered between one to two excursions. You'll receive a calendar of excursions during orientation; here are a few day and overnight excursions we've offered in the past.

Avignon and the Pont du Gard

Avignon and the Pont du Gard

Visit the Papal Palace in Avignon, one of Europe's largest, most important medieval Gothic buildings. Once a fortress and palace, the papal residence was the seat of Western Christianity during the 14th century. Next, explore the Pont du Gard, an ancient Roman aqueduct bridge built in the 1st century. The Pont du Gard is the highest of all Roman aqueduct bridges and among the best-preserved.

Les Baux de Provence

Les Baux de Provence

First stop: Baux de Provence, a medieval fortified town with breath-taking views, to tour a hilltop chateau and learn about medieval Provence. Next, experience a mind-blowing audiovisual art show projected on limestone quarry walls at Les Carriéres. Enjoy a group lunch at Mas de la Pyramide, a quarry dating from Roman times that's now an agricultural museum featuring three centuries of farm life and trades.

Arles

Arles

A key headquarters for Roman military campaigns and center of the Christianization of Gaul, Arles offers windows to a colorful past. The Roman Empire's influence can still be seen in Arles; architecture, baths, aqueduct, mills, amphitheater, and more. Walking between the remnants of pillars and arches, it's easy to forget you're visiting an ancient part of Provence, especially when the ferias and other bull festivals charge the air with excitement.

The Luberon

The Luberon

The Luberon is a lush, green national park where mountain ranges surround a sweeping valley dotted with castles and unbelievable fairy-tale villages thought to be among the most beautiful in France. Stroll along the Sorgue River, which flows from an unknown source deep under Fountaine-de-Vaucluse; hike the red/orange/yellow ochre hills of Roussillon; and explore Gordes, a local commune. Can you discover the café where Russell Crowe filmed his scenes with Marion Cotillard for the movie A Good Year?
