French Language and Culture Summer Program Opportunity

Supported through the French Department at Agnes Scott College

caen panorama

The French Department at Agnes Scott College is proud to partner with the Universite de Caen in Caen, France for an excellent French Language and Culture program. Filled with intensive French language in the mornings (available at all levels), and a myriad of fascinating electives to choose from in the afternoons, students may enroll for this program for three or six weeks.

Students will have opportunity to take two classes at the University of Caen for three weeks (or continue for an additional three weeks for a total of four courses, if desired). Students take French language at the appropriate level every morning and earn 3 credits, and participate in a 2-credit chosen elective course each afternoon. Additional excursions may take place throughout the program.

Elective courses typically change slightly ever year. Past elective courses have included:
  • Culture and Heritage - French culture including gastronomy, art and literature
  • History - The Battle of Normandy
  • French Cinema - taught only in French
  • Business and Management - taught in English
  • History - Peace and Human Rights (offered in second session only)
Language courses will be counted as equivalent to French 101, 102, 201, 202 or 230, depending upon placement. Applicable elective courses will count as 200-level courses for a French major or minor, or as French department elective. The literature course may count as a 300-level course, and the business course must be reviewed by the Business Department for credit.

*Note: Agnes Scott students are not permitted to take the "Leisure and Visits" course or the "Equestrian Normandy" course for credit

Session I - June 12 - 30, 2017 (similar dates in 2018)
Session II - July 3 - 21, 2017 (similar dates in 2018)


Below is an estimated cost for the three-week program from 2017. Costs are obviously higher for a six-week program.

Caen costs 2018

The program fee for one three-week session is approximately $1,200 USD, which includes tuition, dorm housing, and some activities. Both sessions together cost approximately $2,300 USD (plus flight, meals, etc.). There are additional costs for homestay housing and some specific elective courses. Meals can be purchased at the cafeteria for less than six euro per meal.

Students are responsible for paying for program fees directly to the Universte de Caen and are not charged by Agnes Scott College.
