IES Abroad Nice Summer – Multiculturalism & Immigration in the Mediterranean

There are many reasons why people from all over the world travel to Nice in the summer—the sunshine, the famous coastline, and lively arts scene. Nice is an ideal location on the French Riviera, which is what also has attracted immigrants from a variety of countries and has made the region so wonderfully diverse.

Designed for students who are interested in learning about the growing diversity of France, the Mediterranean basin, and Europe as a whole, our Multiculturalism & Immigration in the Mediterranean Program allows you to deepen your understanding of the immigrant migration in the region across several centuries of history. The program features a two-week trip to Marseille, France, and Rabat and Tangiers in Morocco, where you will expand upon your area studies courses in actual field-based study of these highly diverse and multicultural regions of the Mediterranean basin.

Witness ethnic influences everywhere in Nice—see the Roman ruins on Cimiez Hill, walk the medieval cobblestone streets of Old Nice, visit the largest Russian Orthodox Cathedral in Western Europe, breathe the sea air on the 2,600 year-old Port of Marseille, and taste regional Niçoise and Marseillaise fare, which is inspired by French, Spanish, North African, Arabic, and Italian cuisines.
