Program Overview

Program Description:
Georgia State offers many summer and maymester programs led and taught by Georgia State professors. These programs tend to be focused on a particular topic or theme and range from 10 to 20 participants, though some are larger. Students participate in lectures, site visits, excursions, and tours as part of the program. These programs usually last between two and six weeks. Students find these programs a great way to really get to know their professors and other GSU students while earning GSU credits and grades. Students do not have to study on a program related to their major, but they certainly can. Financial aid and scholarships are available.

The French Studies Abroad Program in Tours will consist of an intensive three-week period of study and six days of orientation and extracurricular travel. It will offer students at the intermediate and advanced levels an opportunity to further their knowledge of French language, literature and culture in a rich cultural environment and a rigorous academic setting. The program should be of particular interest to advanced undergraduates preparing to teach in our secondary schools, to students enrolled in graduate programs, and to school teachers seeking recertification through coursework in their discipline.

Setting Description:
The program will be located in Tours, in the heart of the Loire Val­ley. Students will live with carefully selected French families, who will provide lodgings and two meals a day. Weekend and afternoon/ evening excursions will be organized to a number of famed Loire châteaux within easy reach of Tours. A visit to Mont St. Michel and a spectacular son et lumière are also planned. The first three days will be spent in Paris.
