Course Overview

Students attending UIW-Strasbourg during the fall and spring semesters will have an opportunity to take courses at the Château and our partner institution, University of Strasbourg.

During the summer, a unique experience awaits students as the Summer Intercultural Communication and Global Leadership Program offers leadership courses and lectures aimed at engaging students to develop their leadership skills and abilities. This program promises students an opportunity of a lifetime, as special guests, dignitaries and lecturers from both Europe and the U.S. are invited to share their experiences and knowledge.

All courses are taught in English and credits are issued by the University of the Incarnate Word so that students can efficiently work towards graduation while experiencing student life in France. Each course taken at the Château is three U.S. semester credits, unless otherwise specified.

All offered courses are taught in English and are attended by international students. Courses at the University of Strasbourg, Sciences Po department, are taken during the fall and spring semesters only.
