2 Ways to Experience Your Education
Many of our majors—and minors—pursue College Honors or other research and creative projects. In their senior year, all French majors complete a significant capstone project. Here are a few of those recent projects:
Our students take advantage of the more than two dozen off-campus study programs. Our students have studied all over the world, including various parts of France. Here are a couple of the most popular programs:
Knox Program at the University of Franche-Comté, Besançon, France: Knox operates the principal American program at the University of Franche-Comté, Besançon. Besançon is a city of 120,000 people, with 20,000 students at the University. All courses are taught in French by the University of Franche-Comté, Besançon professors. Though a background in the language is required for the program, students with majors other than French may continue study in their major fields. Students stay with French families following their orientation period, then move to University dormitories with French and foreign students.
Senegal: Language and Culture (CIEE): Live and study Senegalese culture and develop skills in French and Wolof, a regional sub-Saharan African language, in one of the most developed and democratic nations in the region. On CIEE's Language and Culture program, you'll immerse yourself fully in the culture by living with a Senegalese family and participating in a fieldwork project.
