French & Francophone Studies majors are required to study abroad for a minimum of one semester in France or another French-speaking country.  Minors and other students in lower level French courses are encouraged to study abroad for a semester as well, or to take advantage of a summer program or one of the many three-week May Term travel courses that are regularly offered.

"Studying abroad made me more independent and aware of the world around me...
Sam Krueger
It helped open my eyes to new opportunities I wouldn't have known
about had I not traveled, and gave me the confidence and passion to continue to travel and learn."
