Study French at the Institut Catholique de Paris and earn six credits
Work toward your language requirement or, if you've already completed Intermediate, earn your certificate with only two more French classes at Saint Anselm. You can study abroad and still graduate in four years.
Intensive French Language
Your mornings will be spent in intensive French language study with faculty at the Institut Catholique. Coursework is tailored to your level and includes 15 hours per week of in-depth study of the language augmented by two workshops focusing on oral or written French, phonetics, or culture and civilization.
Students will be placed into the appropriate level based on a placement exam administered upon arrival.
Your evenings and weekends will be spent learning outside the classroom.
Housing: You will live in a rich environment of your choosing-either independently in a studio apartment, with other students in campus housing, or with a French family in their home.
Paris: There are many reasons Paris is the most popular tourist destination in the world. One of the world's leading business and cultural centers, its influence in politics, education, entertainment, media, fashion, science and the arts all contribute to its status as one of the world's major global cities.
Cultural Excursions: Included in the program are outings to iconic Parisian landmarks like the Eiffel Tower, museums like the Musée d'Orsay, cathedrals like Notre Dame, neighborhoods like Montmartre, and experiences like a boat tour on the Seine.
Beyond Paris: You will also get to visit other regions of France, including a weekend excursion to Rousillon-the red ochre village in the south of France-and a day trip to Normandy, including Giverny, home of Monet and his gardens.
