Set in the heart of France’s beautiful Loire Valley, The Abbey’s ancient campus will welcome you and change our life. A resident campus with its own chapel and historic gardens, The Abbey is a new school of thought in global learning.
Spend a 13-week Spring semester enhancing your education through hands-on, interactive and engaging study with a dynamic collegiate faculty whose passion is your educational growth. The Abbey offers formal classes, service learning projects, and host family opportunities. With the exception of its French courses, The Abbey’s curriculum is entirely taught in English. There are a variety of freshman and sophomore classes as well as advanced seminars in humanities or social sciences.
The cost of the program includes tuition, fees, housing, a week of living and learning in Paris, a week-end visiting the Normandy beaches, lunch at the Abbey Monday- Friday, academic travel, and required museum
visits. The cost of the program does not include international airfare, any student visa fees, additional meals, personal expense and personal travel (two-week mid-term travel break and week-ends). Students who receive scholarships, financial aid and loans that apply to their studies at home may also apply these to study at The Abbey.

Created by International Programs at The University of Southern Mississippi, in partnership with universities and colleges from across the United States, The Abbey offers globally-minded undergraduates the chance to pursue their dreams of becoming, as Socrates put it, a “citizen of the universe”.
