Vanderbilt in France

Summer in Provence

Vanderbilt in France was established in Aix-en-Provence more than 50 years ago. This beautiful city is large enough to offer a lively cultural atmosphere but small enough to allow you to feel at home.



Fall & Spring semesters:

  • classes in both French and English that fulfill requirements in almost all majors
  • internship opportunities in a variety of fields

Summer session (approx. May 25 – July 25):

Make an appointment with Virginia Scott  or Susan Kevra  to discuss options for study at Vanderbilt in France.

**Our program is open to Vanderbilt and non-Vanderbilt students with or without prior experience in French.
