Program Overview

Program Description:
The program provides an enriching academic experience through exposure to noted French professors and the vast cultural resources of Paris. Although greater proficiency in French is the common goal of all participants, not all participants are French majors.

Students follow a curriculum at the Sorbonne (Cours de Civilisation Française) based on their preparation in French, interests, and the results of evaluation tests that are given ten days after their arrival in Paris. All classes are taught in French, yet are intended specifically for international students. They include the French language, French literature, history, economics, political science, art and architecture, and cinema. The courses are designed to meet the specific needs of international students who wish to follow a course of study in French culture and civilization. Students enroll for a minimum of 16 credit hours per semester. Most students on the SUNY at the Sorbonne program are intermediate to advanced French language students. Students at the beginning level of French may apply and will be considered for the program; beginning students will take a special introductory French course at the Sorbonne with limited elective course options. Upon successful completion of course work, students will receive a Certificat/Diplome of Cours de Civilisation Française de la Sorbonne.
