Program Overview

Take your studies to the capital of France's Occitanie region this summer: Toulouse! Here, you will discover the charm of southern France's laid-back culture, explore its diverse architecture, and become captivated by its vibrant local community, all while earning credits on this unforgettable study abroad adventure.

Designed for students who deeply appreciate French culture, CIEE's rigorous Summer in Toulouse program invites you to study French art, architecture, language, gastronomy, and racial diversity in classes led by experienced instructors at CIEE Toulouse. All your courses will be complemented with exciting and engaging excursions, field trips, and cultural activities outside the classroom to help enhance your intercultural understanding of southern France.

Throughout your program, you will have plenty of free time to explore Toulouse's meandering streets, visit The Garonne River, enjoy traditional meals at one of the city's 1,700 eateries, and participate in numerous festivals taking place throughout the summer in the greater Occitanie region. By the end of your program, you will become a member of Toulouse's interconnected community yourself!
