Overview

 

Overview

The French Studies Summer in Paris Program, under the auspices of the Department of French and Italian, offers intensive immersion study in Paris. Students complete coursework in Paris; they visit and report on historic sites, museums, and theatrical performances; and, of course, they check out local cafés and restaurants. Excursions outside Paris include the cathedrals of Chartres, a two-day exploration of the chateaux of the Loire Valley, and a visit to Monet's house in Giverny. Curriculum, housing arrangements, and excursions are designed to build proficiency in French and to increase knowledge of French customs and institutions.

Academics

Courses: The course of study is on intermediate and advanced levels. All program participants are required to select two courses for a total of eight Emory credit hours. The French classes are taught only in French. Students can earn credit for two courses in French, fulfilling the Emory College Foreign Language Requirement. French 312 and French 488 count toward the major or minor in French.

The French Studies Summer in Paris is unique precisely for the reason that this program is completely dependent on the context of the overseas site for all aspects of all four courses offered. Conversation, language, history and theater, all are based on the surroundings, each is about Paris and France and the people who live there. Increasing student sensitivity to and appreciation for cultural diversity and richness is also key. Students are in an environment that uniquely supports this learning, developing real language fluency that will enrich the rest of their lives.
