International exchange and cultural understanding are central to success in today's challenging world. Study abroad facilitates interaction among people of different customs, values, and beliefs, and encourages participants to challenge their own assumptions and biases. This in turn creates better citizens and more informed decision makers.

At our alpine campus in Talloires, France, students learn both inside and outside the classroom. Host families provide insight into French culture and language; small informal classes and excursions to Geneva and other important international centers help students understand the importance of international experience, so necessary for visionary leadership in the global arena.

The European Center also serves as an international meeting site, hosting conferences and seminars attended by participants from all over the world. All of our programs speak to our mission of facilitating and promoting international understanding.

The Tufts European Center is actually a former Priory, part of a Benedictine monastery that was founded in the 11th century. This extraordinary building lends itself beautifully to study, contemplation, reflection and exploration.

All of our programs take full advantage of this exceptional location, offering an unequaled combination of European charm and natural serenity as well as a commitment to quality education and service.

Take your education to new heights! We encourage you to come to Talloires and experience for yourself one of the Tufts University Summer Programs in the Alps.
