The French foreign study provides students the opportunity to study French language, literature, and civilization at an advanced level in Paris.
Special courses in advanced grammar and stylistics, modern French literature, art history and modern history and politics are taught by French faculty and the Dartmouth faculty member.
The program aims to expose students to French culture and society through classroom study and readings, excursions and site visits, personal contact with families and firsthand experience with French. Students are expected to converse fluently with French people and to write on a variety of cultural topics with an accurate command of French vocabulary and idiom. Students will gain a perspective on their own culture through intimate experience with and understanding of French culture.
