In addition to their core studies in the social sciences or French language track, all students may take an optional elective course. These classes are an opportunity for students to delve more deeply into a subject of interest, or to explore a new topic. Students may take one elective class per session.

  • Course hours: elective courses represent a total of 24 hours per session.
  • How to enroll: elective courses are only open to students who have been admitted to a core course in the French language or social sciences track; it is not possible to take an elective as a stand-alone class. Admitted students are able to sign up for an elective class when they complete their registration for the Summer School.
  • Tuition fees: 500 € per session.
