The two courses are Aspects of Contemporary French Culture: Culture and Communication and Paris, capital of modernity: Visions of the City from Surrealism to the Present. Classes will be taught exclusively in French. Students must have at least a B average in French and be qualified to take 100-level French courses. Students may have fulfilled this requirement either through course work at the college level or through advanced placement testing. Students must register for both courses.
- Setting Description:
- A “museum without walls”, Paris has sparked the intellectual imagination of artists, writers, and students for centuries. By immersing students in the world of contemporary Paris, this intensive program offers unique insight into France’s historical, literary, and cultural traditions. In addition to studying classical and contemporary works, students participate in weekly cultural activities where they perfect their French in the context of everyday life. Using the city as an extension of the classroom, they visit musées, théâtres, cafés, and quartiers recorded in the cultural texts that they study. Students on this program gain a deeper knowledge and appreciation of the geography, history, and people that make up the ‘City of Light’.
