At Bryant, we focus on the richness and expertise of knowledge that is gained through experiential learning. Here are just a few ways in which students put their learning to work:

Study Abroad

  • Study a full semester in Aix-en-Provence (pictured above) through Bryant's extensive study abroad program.
  • Immersive study abroad can include an internship with local companies, using French language skills. 
  • Choose a short-term, faculty-led program for a quicker experience at the start or end of a semester.


  • Present original research at Research and Engagement Day, known as REDay
  • Bryant Honors Program 
  • Participate in the annual Reading Without Borders event



Students may study abroad in the city of Aix (pronounced like the letter "X"), where they find traditional French culture amid the appeal and elegance of a large metropolis. The historic town is known for its beloved painter, Paul Cézanne, who painted the surrounding rolling landscape.
