About the Program

Nice’s spectacular location makes it a jewel in the Mediterranean region, one of the oldest trading regions in the world. Often described as an area of mutual economic, social, and cultural exchange, this ancient trading ground is now threatened by human pressure on delicately linked social and ecological systems. 

With some of the highest real estate prices in the world, a changing climate, and a vulnerable economy based on tourism, the region is a laboratory for sustainability. Here, crisis, adaptation, and resilience can be studied in real time. Our program in Nice allows you to observe firsthand (through course-related trips, case studies, and field trips) some of the social and environmental challenges facing this fragile region.
