Tufts in Talloires
May 16 – June 30, 2017
Tufts in Talloires is a six-week summer program for college students
from Tufts and other universities, offers students a dynamic group
of courses taught by Tufts faculty. Students enrolled in this
program choose two courses from a selection of undergraduate
offerings (which differ each year) — most of which are taught in
English. Courses are designed to take advantage of Talloires' ideal
location in the center of Europe, as well as its striking alpine
setting, which inspires reflection and thought.
Talloires' proximity to the important international center of Geneva
allows students to venture out of the classroom and benefit from
visits to a multitude of international organizations, museums, and
historical monuments in the area.
In addition to coursework, a wide variety of optional outdoor
activities, weekly hikes into the Alps, field trips, and organized
events offer each student the opportunity to explore the unique
Haute-Savoie region of France. Students enjoy one-on-one interaction
with their professors within the classroom and during field trips
and other cultural excursions.
