The French Department at Agnes Scott College is proud to partner with the Universite de Caen in Caen, France for an excellent French Language and Culture program. Filled with intensive French language in the mornings (available at all levels), and a myriad of fascinating electives to choose from in the afternoons, students may enroll for this program for three or six weeks.

Students will have opportunity to take two classes at the University of Caen for three weeks (or continue for an additional three weeks for a total of four courses, if desired). Students take 45 hours French language, worth 3 credits, at the appropriate level every morning of written communication, grammar, vocabulary enrichment, and oral practice.  Student participate also in a 2-credit chosen elective course each afternoon for a total of 30 hours of lectures and site visits. Additional excursions may take place throughout the program.

Elective courses typically change slightly ever year. Past elective courses have included:
  • Culture and Heritage - French culture including gastronomy, art and literature
  • History - The Battle of Normandy
  • French Cinema - taught only in French
  • Business and Management - taught in English
  • History - Peace and Human Rights (offered in French - second session only)
Language courses will be counted as equivalent to French 101, 102, 201, 202 or 230, depending upon placement. Applicable elective courses will count as 200-level courses for a French major or minor, or as French department elective. The literature course may count as a 300-level course, and the business course must be reviewed by the Business Department for credit.
