Program Description:

SCAD students have the unique opportunity in Lacoste to live, learn and create art in the rural bucolic beauty of Lacoste, a supportive environment rich with culture and history. The campus facilities are located in Provence, France and encompass a preserved medieval village including a meticulously restored 11 c. farmhouse. All students live in SCAD residence facilities and dine in one of our two dining halls.
Not only are students immersed in the Provencal French culture, landscape and artistry, but opportunities abound for them to walk in history’s footsteps with visits to nearby destinations such as Nîmes, Aix-en-Provence and Saint Rémy, through many travel-oriented classes on offer through the SCAD Lacoste program each quarter. Planned trips for all participants in the SCAD Lacoste program include 4 nights and five day excursion to Paris, as well as two Friday all-campus day-trips to nearby towns or cities in the Provence region.
Coursework is slightly different than SCAD’s other campuses with classes being offered at an accelerated 8-week pace with firsthand experiences through on-site learning. Faculty coursework is geared to a collaborative and communal learning experience, which alumni of the program often account as the most impactful of their careers at SCAD. At the end of each quarter, students have an opportunity to exhibit and sell their work by taking part in Open Studio. 

"Considerations for the SCAD Lacoste program are limited to students who are in good standing with the university. Additionally, factors for acceptance include GPA, class standing and seat availability. Students currently enrolled at SCAD have priority; however, non-SCAD students may apply."
Non-SCAD students may apply by contacting the office of study abroad at or 912.525.5806.
