Study Abroad Programs

Study abroad is the most effective way to achieve linguistic and cultural fluency. Vassar College and Wesleyan University jointly sponsor a program of study in Paris. Students may enroll in this program for one or two semesters during their junior year. For more information about the Vassar-Wesleyan Program in Paris (VWPP), please visit the following site:

Alternatively, for those students interested in studying abroad in a Francophone country or region other than Paris, the Department of French and Francophone studies strongly encourages students to explore the possibility of enrolling in one of a number of programs approved by the Office of International Programs.

Students of French and Francophone Studies who are unable to study abroad during the academic year are strongly encouraged to attend the summer program at Middlebury College French School or other summer programs in France or French-speaking countries. Please contact the departmental assistant for a list of recommended summer programs.
