FOCUS ON our students who have chosen the « Marseille, Gateway to Mediterranean » curriculum.

Living in Marseille, our students benefits from a stimulating and highly diverse “melting pot” of French, European, and North African cultures. In a total immersion in French culture, they study Arabic language and culture, Islam as well as international and inter-religious relations in the Mediterranean basin.

On November, they finally reached the moment of consolidation of their immersion studies with a trip to Fez.

Our students left on November 13th for a week-long course of study, including a series of conferences and visits, a week-long homestay with a Moroccan family, a formal discussion with veiled Muslim women, all highlighted by the presence of the eminent Doctor Fatima Sadiqi, President of the Center for Study and Research on Women and author of several books regarding the role of women in the Muslim world.

Here are some highlights to share!
