The specific courses offered every semester are subject to change. Note that you can select any of the "year" tracks as long as prerequisites are met, but cannot mix years due to scheduling conflicts. All courses are taught in English. If you are fluent in French, other course options may be available to you.

Living

The IPAG exchange coordinators help students find apartments during the orientation. Students pay a housing fee upon arrival in Nice. Housing fees vary, but most students find accommodation for roughly $500-550/month for a shared apartment close to campus (and the beach).

Exploring

With its mix of real-city grit, old-world opulence, year-round sunshine and stunning seaside location, Nice is the unofficial capital of the Côte d’Azur, and a must-see for every visitor. A magnet for sunseekers and high-rollers since the 19th century, this bewitching coastal city has so much going for it, it’s almost embarrassing – fabulous markets, an enticing old town, glorious architecture and a wealth of super restaurants. Close to Italy, you get the benefit of French cuisine with the laid back Italian attitude. Try some moules-frites (mussels and french fries) or socca (a thin unleavened pancake of chickpea flour), or stop by one of the numerous gelato stands around the old town squares. With parks, outside music venues, and numerous beaches available, your life outside the classroom will be full of fun in the Mediterranean sun!

Eligibility

The program is open to students majoring in business who are in good academic and student standing at any CUNY school, who have a minimum of 12 credits at time of application with a minimum 2.75 GPA. These exchange programs require a certain level of maturity, independence, seriousness of purpose, and an ability to adapt to new environmental and academic conditions, so an in-person campus interview is required. Late admission can only be considered on a space by space basis.

Film and Filmmaking in Paris, France

Overview

Spend three weeks during the summer of 2023 exploring the French culture through the lens of a camera. You’ll learn about film theory and French cinema from CSI faculty and host partners. You’ll engage in specially curated screenings and will employ the theoretical strategies and aesthetics learned in the classroom into your own film and media productions.
 
This summer, students’ films will focus on a specific theme. Paris will provide the palate as you write, shoot, edit, and produce a short film using our partner's facilities. In the evenings, you can draw inspiration from all of the sights, sounds, and tastes available. Or perhaps you’ll join your CSI faculty in exploring the city, learning about its history and its place in the world of film.
 

"France is one of the first havens of film in history. Having that opportunity to learn cinema where all other great cinephiles and filmmakers learned, created and grew was invaluable. To learn about this cinema was a great privilege that I am forever grateful for."

Studying 

The CSI Department of Media Culture and the Center for Global Engagement at the College of Staten Island (CSI) will lead a summer program in 2023 in France that integrates film study and filmmaking. Led by Professor David A. Gerstner and his colleague, artist and filmmaker, Mitchell Lovell, the “Film and Filmmaking” program is an intensive three-week program of study and filmmaking during July. The course is taught in English and includes daily class meetings, workshops, and screenings.

Please see this past syllabus as a guideline for the coursework.
Summer 2016
 

I honestly cannot understate in any capacity how important this program was to my Graduate experience—besides going to a chateau, how many film studies students can say they got to go to the CNC (National Centre for Cinema and the Moving Image) and meet Christophe Honoré? The structure of the class was incredibly engaging, more like a film symposium with guest lecturers, and discussion. Which of course was then reinforced by the actual process of planning our own group film. The program is as  intrinsically amorous as you'd imagine, and twice as fun.

Matthew Ballinger, 2016 program

Filmmaking

Working in groups, you will be guided in manifesting the concepts learned in the classroom into movies. You will be involved in the full process of creating a film, from concept to editing.  The goal is to create a package of 2-to-3-minute films that showcase the rich cultural dynamic of film in French culture.

All production equipment for principal photography while in France, are provided by CUNY-CSI and its host partner.
 

The more I stayed, the more it felt like I was living on a fantasy land. It was very exciting to set up and shoot in areas that were vastly different than areas that exist in New York. But as a filmmaker, this experience was so important because there'll be a point when you shoot in an unfamiliar environment for the sake of realizing your vision. 

Sabino Liotti, 2018 program

Past Projects

L’été en Suspens (A Summer Paused), 2016
In the premier year of the program, students were intrigued by France and Europe’s current events and elections. Fittingly inspired by Jean Rouch’s Chronicle of a Summer, the 2016 cohort created a short documentary that explores fear and tragedy while celebrating the process of filmmaking.
 

I was able not only to submerge myself in a new and exciting culture but also learn to work with a group of people on a documentary that challenged us all emotionally and mentally. It was a stimulating journey that anyone interested in discovering new cultures or film should partake in.

Nicholas Jastrzebski, 2016 program

See the video here.
 

 
Walker’s Paradox, 2018
For the 2018 group of filmmakers and writers, the intersection of social movements and cinema as it pertains to France was once again a theme. The group wrote and shot a story of two women who try to find middle-ground after amidst countering points of the #MeToo movement. In this short, the cinema itself plays a haunting third character.

See the video here.

Living

While studying in Paris, you will live in shared rooms located in the city and near restaurants, shopping, cultural sites, and local transportation.

 

Exploring

Paris is a great city for students who want to discover and learn. Museums and romantic places are not the only attractions in the City of Lights. Parks, river cruises, shows and concerts, and more are waiting for you. Take advantage of your free time during this program to explore the city!

Academics & Program

View here the Fall 2022 Course Schedule and the Spring 2022 Course Schedule.

Course descriptions and syllabi are available on IAU's website.

Schedule
The Institute for American Universities (IAU) in Aix-en-Provence, France is chartered by the Board of Regents of The State University of New York and was founded in 1957 under the auspices of the Universitè d'Aix-Marseille. It is one of the oldest and largest education abroad programs of its type in Europe.
 
IAU offers four programs of study in Aix-en-Provence: The School of Humanities and Social Sciences, The School of Business and International Relations, The French Honors Program, and The Marchutz School of Fine Arts.

 

  • The School of Humanities and Social Sciences - IAU prides itself on the diversity of its course offerings in English, French, and Arabic which enables students with any background in French language the ability to gain access to a study abroad experience. The multiple course offerings allow students to fulfill many of their general education requirements and complete major and minor requirements linked to areas in the humanities, social sciences, education, and the arts.

 

  • The School of Business and International Relations - Through the School of Business and International Relations, all students have the unique opportunity to learn about international business strategies and procedures with a specific focus on the global market. IAU business courses are approved by Fairfield University, an IAU partner institution whose Dolan School of Business is accredited through AACSB, The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Disciplines taught include economics, finance, international business, management, and marketing.

 

  • The French Honors Program - The French Honors Program is designed for French majors or other students with demonstrated advanced-level French, interested in a comprehensive language and cultural immersion program. All honors students enroll in a weekly French Honors Seminar (FRE/LIT/ART 411), all remaining courses are taught in French, and internship placements for course credit are also available. Additionally, students will be expected to keep a daily journal in French. This journal will be examined and discussed on a regular basis in the weekly seminar meeting.

 

  • The Marchutz School of Fine Arts - The Marchutz Arts Core Program is open to students of all majors, artistic skill levels, and backgrounds, and offers an immersive experience in painting, drawing, art history, and art theory with extensive excursions throughout Europe. Students enrolled in the School of Humanities and Social Sciences or the School of Business and International Relations may take courses at the Marchutz School of Fine Arts along with their other courses including art history, creative writing, archaeology, painting and drawing, photography, architectural design, sculpture, and more.

 

Semester Offering

In addition to the above programs of study, IAU provides access to unpaid, for-credit internships available at local enterprises for semester students. Interested students should have at least four semesters of college French and must provide their resume before the start of the semester. While placement cannot be guaranteed for those without upper-level French language experience, it is possible for students with lower-level French to be placed. These situations are handled on a case-by-case basis.
 
Designed for all majors, IAU is renowned for its founding philosophy of making it possible for students with beginning French language skills to study in France. The structure of its program, which combines French language study with a range of liberal arts and social science courses taught in both English, French, or Arabic, has opened the doors of cross-cultural learning to thousands of students. For an additional per course fee, advanced French language students may be eligible to take courses at l’Université de Provence Aix-Marseille.
 

 

Semester Courses 

IAU required course load is 15 credits. At least one course in French is required. Students may choose courses across all disciplines.  Except where noted on the Course Schedule, all courses carry 3 credits. Students interested in certificate programs or core arts program will find required course groupings on the last page of the Course Schedule.

Summer Course Offerings 

Students may choose 1, 2, or 3 classes (3 – 9 credits) from the flexible summer sessions. The summer terms include a six-week session and two three-week sessions.

The principal areas of study offered in the summer program are French language and culture (introductory through advanced levels of language, civilization, and literature); art and archaeology, including art history and studio art; and European/international studies and social sciences (business, comparative literature, economics, education, government, history, philosophy, political science, and psychology). 

Here is the Summer 2022 Course Schedule .

Living

Housing
Students are housed in the homes of French host families. Living in a French home is ideal as it provides an immediate introduction to life in Southern France. Host families come from a cross-section of society; they belong to no particular professional or social milieu, but all are carefully chosen, and many have hosted American students for several years.
 
The homestay option offers students room and half board. Daily continental breakfasts and six dinners a week are provided by the host family. Students are responsible for lunches. There is a multitude of affordable cafés, brasseries, small sandwich and grocery shops from which to choose. Many other food markets are available around town during the week.
 
Bed, linen, pillow and blankets, are provided, and the room is cleaned weekly. Students must bring their own towels, and they are provided with one machine load of wash each week. You can request to be placed with another IAU roommate in the host family setting.

Exploring

Semester Program

Aix’s location provides numerous travel opportunities for students studying in Aix-en-Provence. Marseilles, the Mediterranean and the Maritime Alps are only an hour away, and Nice, Monte Carlo, Barcelona, Saint Tropez, Paris, Milan, Rome and Geneva are all within one day of travel, perfect for a weekend trip.
 
Field study trips are also embedded into many courses; several others are organized by IAU staff. Students are also encouraged to strike out on their own and explore their new surroundings. Provence is known for its sunny, temperate and generally dry climate, so sunshine and outdoor activities abound. Beaches, hiking, skiing in the nearby alps, traveling to European destinations, as well as cinema and theatre, museums, lectures and concerts are just some of the possible activities for students.
 
Students enrolled in the program also have the opportunity to participate in language partner and volunteer programs, as well as additional excursions, field trips and cultural activities.
 
Summer Program

Aix-en-Provence is a major cultural center, hosting a summer International Music Festival featuring jazz, pop, classical, and opera. Cinemas, museums, parks, restaurants, cafes, and night clubs, as well as a variety of sporting events, are available to students. The region is known for its sunny, temperate and generally dry climate, so sunshine and outdoor activities abound. 

Eligibility

Students must have a minimum of a 2.5 GPA on 4.0 scale and have completed 12 college credits at time of application.  Students may have freshman through senior standing.  There are no foreign language requirements; all courses are offered in English.

SEMESTER

Semester Students may be housed in a French homestay with breakfast and evening meals included. Most students choose this arrangement, though homestays with only "bed and breakfast" are available as well as the opportunity to live in shared apartments with other students.

Students complete a housing questionnaire to indicate their needs and choices and, in the case of homestay, the degree of involvement desired with hosts. The term "family" is used loosely, as the possibilities are many and not limited to "traditional" families.

 

SUMMER

Summer student housing options include homestay, student apartment, or a student residence hall. In the apartments and residence halls, students are responsible for all meals.

Exploring

Student Life
The summer program offers hiking, boating, visits to historical and cultural sites, led by an IFALPES staff member. Additional planned excursions can be included at an extra cost.

Eligibility

Students must have a minimum of a 2.5 GPA on 4.0 scale and have completed 12 college credits at time of application.  Students may have freshman through senior standing.  There are no foreign language requirements.  French courses are taught in French, with the aid of English.

Alumni

"What really made the trip and learning experiences unique were the professors and site visits. I’ve never had classes that were as thought provoking as the lectures we had. I had never thought as critically, either. I felt challenged and that I had to think of things from every perspective. This may have been because I’m a business major, but I think the professors made the classes interesting. If I had to take this at my home university, I don’t think I would have learned or had been engaged as much. There is something about experiential learning that is unique and lasting." - Cinara Foor, University of Akron, J Term

Studio Art and Study in France: IAU - The Marchutz School of Fine Arts

Overview

L’Ecole Marchutz

The Marchutz School of Fine Arts

A unique art program for all majors.

 

Overview

You'll marvel at your studio art study experince in beautiful Aix-en-Provence!  You can enjoy study on this exciting and unique hands-on program for an academic year, a semester, a summer or a combination of terms. The Studio Art and Study in France program in the south of France is offered at The Marchutz School of Fine Arts, located just outside Aix-en-Provence, near the Chateaunoir where Cézanne lived and worked. The Marchutz School of Fine Arts, founded by German artist Léo Marchutz in 1971, operates under the auspices of the Institute for American Universities (IAU). Provence is one of the most beautiful, varied regions of France, roughly bordered by Toulon to the east, Nómes to the west and Orange to the north. The Mediterranean is the natural boundary to the south.
 
The Marchutz School of Fine Arts combines studio work, an intensive interdisciplinary art criticism seminar, liberal arts and social science courses for an immersive artistic experience.  Excursions to local and regional museums and cities around France and Europe round out the term abroad. Studio work informs the museum excursions, while the seminar discussions and museum study enhance the on-site painting and drawing sessions. An in-depth study of the locations that inspired masterworks by Van Gogh and Cezanne benefits each student’s own way of seeing. All of these activities interweave to give each artist a perception of his or her own contemporary work in relation to the art of the past -- an essential step toward self-discovery.

Studying 

At the Marchutz School of Fine Arts, all courses are taught in English. This is truly a unique art program designed for all majors.  The Marchutz student body usually consists of individuals with a varied range of experience. As students engage in their individual artistic endeavors, this range of age and experience proves beneficial to the quality of dialogue and capacity for growth. The Marchutz School of Fine Arts takes an interdisciplinary and holistic approach to art education.
 
The general purpose of the curriculum is threefold: to enhance awareness of the relationship between perception and imagination, to foster historical and critical perspective, and, above all, to develop the student's capacity to see.

The Marchutz School of Fine Arts in Aix-en-Provence takes an interdisciplinary and holistic-approach to studio art. Painting and drawing, study in museums, and reading/writing assignments encourage students to explore the correspondences between natural and artistic forms. In the studio, figure drawing, portraiture, landscape and still-life painting are interrelated with copying, memory work, and sketchbook journals.
 
Group and individual critiques are integral to the students' work. In seminars, students are asked to seek connections in their work with that of other artists and critics. Music, poetry, and theater are often compared to painting, sculpture, or architecture. Studio disciplines and aesthetics are taught separately but presented as a unified body. Studio, writing, history, and criticism combine to form one seminar in seeing. The faculty considers each student as a working artist regardless of his/her level of experience. Whether beginning or well advanced, the student who will thrive at the Marchutz School of Fine Arts is serious and committed.
 

Candidates

The school's diverse student body is one of its most exciting resources. Each cohort usually consists of twenty individuals who have a varied range of experiences. Studio art and art history majors, working artists, MFA candidates, art minors, and other students with a real interest in art all bring their particular insights to a shared space and common themes. As students engage in artistic endeavors, their range of ages and achievements enriches the quality of dialogue and expands the capacity for growth. An individual's willingness to embrace this challenge of new exchange matters more than work already accomplished.
 

 

Semester and Academic Year Course Offerings

Course descriptions are available here.

Semester students must enroll in Painting (3 credits), Drawing (3 credits), and the Art Criticism Seminar (3 credits). Students will then have 6 additional credits to fulfill including a required course in French (3-6 credits) and an optional elective course which is dependent on the number of French credits already selected (3 credits).

PAINTING AND DRAWING I, II OR III (Required) – 3 credits
The overarching purpose of the painting and drawing courses, at all levels, is to develop the student’s capacity to look both into the visible world and into themselves with the intention of transforming their vision into art. The student is led gradually toward a deeper understanding of the relationship between natural and artistic forms. This is achieved through disciplined study in the landscape, through portraiture and model work and museum study. 90 contact hours.
 
ART CRITICISM AND AESTHETICS (Required) – 3 credits
Intensive critical and comparative analysis of works from different periods and cultures, with an emphasis on the relationship between content and form. Includes three full-day seminar/site visits.

ADDITIONAL COURSE (Optional) – 3 credits. Students can choose a liberal arts or social sciences course offered during the summer term. Additional charges apply.

Summer:    6 - 9 credits

Living

Housing

Students are housed in the homes of French host families. Living in a French home is ideal as it provides an immediate introduction to life in Southern France. Host families come from a cross-section of society; they belong to no particular professional or social milieu, but all are carefully chosen, and many have hosted American students for several years.
 
The homestay option offers students room and half board. Daily continental breakfasts and six dinners a week are provided by the host family. Students are responsible for lunches. There is a multitude of affordable cafés, brasseries, small sandwich and grocery shops from which to choose. Many other food markets are available around town during the week.
 
Bed, linen, pillow and blankets, are provided, and the room is cleaned weekly. Students must bring their own towels, and they are provided with one machine load of wash each week. You can request to be placed with another IAU roommate in the host family setting.

Exploring

Student Life

Aix’s location provides numerous travel opportunities for students studying in Aix-en-Provence. Marseilles, the Mediterranean and the Maritime Alps are only an hour away, and Nice, Monte Carlo, Barcelona, Saint Tropez, Paris, Milan, Rome and Geneva are all within one day of travel, perfect for a weekend trip.
 
Field study trips are also embedded into many courses; several others are organized by IAU staff. Students are also encouraged to strike out on their own and explore their new surroundings. Provence is known for its sunny, temperate and generally dry climate, so sunshine and outdoor activities abound. Beaches, hiking, skiing in the nearby alps, traveling to European destinations, as well as cinema and theatre, museums, lectures and concerts are just some of the possible activities for students.

Students enrolled in the program also have the opportunity to participate in language partner and volunteer programs, as well as additional excursions, field trips and cultural activities.
 

Summer

Aix-en-Provence is a major cultural center, hosting a summer International Music Festival featuring jazz, pop, classical, and opera. Cinemas, museums, parks, restaurants, cafes, and night clubs, as well as a variety of sporting events, are available to students. The region is known for its sunny, temperate and generally dry climate, so sunshine and outdoor activities abound.
