Study Abroad Programs
We encourage you to spend some time studying abroad and exploring different cultures. Within our department, there are three study abroad programs: a summer program in Florence, Italy, a summer program in Paris, France, and a semester-long program in Angers, France. We also offer a variety of scholarships and financial aid options to help cover some of the cost.
Feel free to get in touch with the Office of Study Abroad or your study abroad advisor if you are interested in any of these programs.
Additionally, if you are thinking about spending a year in France, you may want to explore student-initiated programs (SIPs) at French universities by contacting the programs coordinator in the Office of Study Abroad.
Spend the semester in Angers, France studying French language and civilization. Learn more here.
As one of the USA’s oldest continuously offered academic summer programs (since 1958), the Summer Language Institute in France enables students to experience the cultural offerings of both the French capital and the regions of Normandy, Brittany, and the Loire Valley while completing intensive coursework in French language, history and civilization. Learn more here.
This program offers students an opportunity to live and learn in Florence, Italy. Students will study intermediate Italian language and live with Florentine families for one or two months over the summer. Learn more here.
