This summer, experience the City of Light while earning up to 12 credits toward college course work. This intensive French language and culture program will provide you the opportunity - and the tools - to live in Paris like the Parisians do. Visit your local street market; discover charming neighborhoods off the beaten path; stroll or bike along the banks of the Seine; discover your favorite boulangerie.
Iconic Paris awaits you with its world class museums, its bustling café culture and all of the energetic diversity of France! You will discover unusual facets of France in weekly excursions outside the capital. In recent years, we have visited Honfleur, a picturesque fishing town in Normandy and birthplace of Impressionism, the Château of Fontainebleau, a favorite of French kings with its vast surrounding forests, and the Champagne region with its famous Reims Cathedral and "caves" or wine cellars.The program is designed for students of French, whose goal is speaking proficiency, improved written expression and intercultural competence. Highly motivated students anxious to discover this great world capital and acquaint themselves with its rich cultural heritage and people will benefit immensely from this opportunity to practice French beyond the confines of the classroom. This program is designed for mature students who can handle a brisk pace.
Scholarships: To help cover the cost of the program, the Department of French and Francophone Studies may be able to offer limited scholarships based on merit and need. See the Scholarships page.
