It is very likely that you have had a visit from the Center for Global Education these
last few weeks to present the French summer programming. We hope that you will consider expanding your current classroom studies of French and venture out and abroad! Just to recap, the amazing summer programs for French language credits are:
Join Professor Erin Mateu in Paris for
this four-week, 6 credit program in
beautiful Paris. Participants will stay in an authentic and charming French dorm on the Boulevard Saint Michel in the Latin Quarter and attend classes at the Alliance Française (just across the Jardin de Luxembourg from the dorm). Visit
Paris freely on your métro pass and celebrate Bastille Day under the Eiffel Tower!
This program is open to beginner (no previous French language study required) to advanced undergraduate students, so bring your friends and get them hooked on French!
Spend some time in Montreal this summer
earning 9 transfer credits! This 6-week program
is hosted by the Université de Québec à Montréal, and is not led by Mason faculty. It is the perfect program for someone looking to complete their full language requirement, but also offers intermediate and advanced level courses.
If you are looking for semester options for your study of the French language, consider one of these Direct Exchanges:
Although French proficiency is not required for study at the prestigious SciencesPo,
it is an excellent program for experiencing the French university system! Most classes are in Politics, History and Sociology and participants can take their classes in French if they have completed FREN 309. Choose from their seven campuses based on your
area of interest.
Although this is not a language-based semester program, the semester at KEDGE (formerly
known as “EuroMed”) is in Marseilles, France!
Courses are all business related and can be taken in either French or English.
