Study Abroad

Carleton's French and Francophone Studies Department organizes one off-campus study program:

The Paris French Studies Program takes place each spring and will be directed in 2018 by Cathy Yandell. Classes are held in the heart of the famous Left Bank, with various excursions to sites throughout the capital. Students stay with carefully selected French families and discover Paris while immersing themselves in French life and language. Each program includes a one-week trip to Morocco. Coursework typically focuses on literary and cultural studies, language, art history, and political science.

The Senegal Program will be offered winter break 2018 and will be led by Chérif Keïta. Senegal served as the gate through which millions of Africans were forcibly transported to the New World and the base of West African colonial occupation by France and its European rivals. Today, it is a regional center of culture and cosmopolitanism. Spend two weeks in the land of Teranga (hospitality), encountering Senegal’s rich history and contemporary culture.

Carleton students' choices are not limited to these programs. Some programs organized by other schools and organizations are already approved by the College (requiring only a short application to Off Campus Studies):

If students would like to study with another program not already approved or recommended by the College, they may petition to have a new program approved. For general information on study abroad opportunities, visit the home page of Carleton's Off-Campus Studies Office.
