Program Overview

The Wine, Gastronomy & Sustainability of the Mediterranean J-Term Seminar focuses on the appreciation of gastronomy and wine while exploring regional and local delicacies. Students will learn to appreciate how these products are produced, understand how it impacts the environment, and will begin to recognize how our consumption choices may be a potential solution or hazard to the global environmental crisis. The Institute for American Universities (IAU) is located in Aix-en-Provence situated on the Mediterranean coast. 
 

 

For the safety and well-being of all program participants, IAU-ACM is requiring all students, staff and faculty to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to participate in all IAU-ACM J-Term programs. Students will be required to submit proof of vaccination to IAU-ACM's U.S. Office of Admissions by October 1, 2021. An extension of this deadline can be provided to any student who is in the process of becoming fully vaccinated, but all students must be in compliance by no later than November 15, 2021.

About the Professor:

Professor Anthony Triolo is a long-time Professor of International Relations and Environmental Politics at IAU. He received a Bachelor’s degree (Summa Cum Laude) in International Affairs from the American University of Paris, and later earned a Master’s Degree in Strategic Studies (Histoire Militaire, Securite et Defense) from IEP, Aix-en-Provence, France in conjunction with Universite Paul Valery III, Montpellier, France. Professor Triolo is a veteran of the United States Marine Corps and has several years of hands-on experience managing sustainable and organic vineyards. His scholarly interests are centered around the relationships between international security and global environmental crisis with a particular focus on sustainable agriculture, which he sees as a possible panacea, playing a significant role in mitigating climate change, biodiversity loss, water scarcity and food insecurity.

Alumni experiences

Adventures abroad

Great Cities January Term 2017; University of Tampa

“My experience going abroad through IAU has been nothing shy of extraordinary. I went into it not knowing any of my classmates, but the professors immediately made us all feel welcome. We soon began traveling in a foreign country and with every new excursion we all became such close travel companions. Being in that type of environment forces you to step outside of your comfort zone and open yourself up to new cultures and experiences. Having been a part of this program has not only benefited my knowledge of the world, but created unique memories with people I wouldn't have otherwise met, that I will forever cherish. If you're looking for personal growth with a side of adventure, IAU abroad is your next step.”
