Bachelor's and Master's Programs

Courses

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, or Arabic), so students need not have a background in language study before arrival abroad. However, IAU does require students to enroll in a minimum of one language course during most semester programs. Students at the Institute Catholique in Paris are required to have a more advanced level of the French language.

Students have the opportunity to pursue undergraduate research projects directed by IAU faculty. 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 semester in the student portal, and schedules are confirmed prior to arrival abroad.
