Our semester programmes are aimed at students from all countries, who want to experience living in Paris and learning about French history, culture and arts as well as the professional skills of the cultural management consultant, dealer or collector. Each semester starts with a month-long induction of intensive French classes and introduction to French culture. After that, while continuing French studies, students choose two additional specific options, ranging from art history, French literature or philosophy, twentieth-century cinema and literature. The autumn semester includes a special option in the business of the art market while in the spring semester, we offers a special option in cultural events management. All these courses are taught in English. Students fluent in French may opt for courses from the range of IESAÃ¢??s undergraduate programmes in art history, cultural management or art business.
