Patti McGill Peterson Center for International and Intercultural Studies
The Program in France is designed to serve two distinct student groups. The fall semester (which students may elect to extend to a full year) is for students with a good command of the French language. The fall courses, designed specifically for our program participants, are taught in French by local professors. Those electing to stay on for the year will enroll in courses at the University of Rouen for the second semester.
The spring semester is designed for students with minimal exposure to French who are interested in developing competency in the language and in exploring three distinct francophone cultures. Half of the academic program for the spring semester is intensive work in French language. The other two courses, which focus on France, are taught in English.
