Bachelor's and Master's Programs


Course availability is a large part of the choice to study abroad with IAU. The breadth and depth of courses available at IAU allows students from all disciplines ample opportunity to continue their path of study from their home university as well as try something new while abroad.

IAU courses are offered in both English and the host language (French, Spanish, Italian, or Arabic), so students do not need to have a background in language study. However, IAU does require or strongly encourages students to enroll in a minimum of one language course during most semester programs. Certificate programs are available as well as Honors Programs, internships, and independent studies.

Students work with an IAU Advisor to select their courses before the start of the term in the student portal, and schedules are confirmed prior to arrival abroad.
