The department strongly encourages our majors to study off campus for a semester or a full academic year to improve linguistic competence and to gain experience with Francophone culture.
In recent years, students have participated in study opportunities in Paris and Nantes through IES; at the Centre de Linguistique Appliquée in Besançon; in other parts of France (Toulouse, Montpelier, Strasbourg); and in French-speaking areas of Québec and Africa. Three programs in which Wooster students regularly participate are the Sweet Briar program in Paris, the Dickinson program in Toulouse, and the Kalamazoo program in Dakar, Senegal.
Financial aid obtained through the College may be applied to most approved programs, and a limited number of scholarships to assist with the travel expenses of students studying abroad in a French-speaking country are available from The McSweeney Fund.
Students interested in study abroad opportunities should consult the International Programs Office and the Chair of the French Department.
