This 4 week program has been designed to improve students’ French language skills while enriching their knowledge of French and European Cultures. The program offers French and Global Studies courses combined with cultural activities, including a 2 day visit to Paris.
With its cultural, historical, and political background, France is the perfect place to take a Global Studies course. Students will attend seminars on several aspects of France’s, also Europe’s, role in the world. Outside the classroom, a comprehensive series is organized to artistic and historical destinations, from museums and art galleries to centers portraying vital social and political events.
