Through a generous donor, in honor of former French Department member Chloe Steel, an award of $1,615 is being given to support one student studying this coming summer in Caen, France, for a three-week immersive language and culture program. The award covers the full program fee for the first three-week session at the University of Caen. Students are welcome to stay for the second session at their own cost.
Students will have opportunity to take two classes at the University of Caen for three weeks (or continue for an additional three weeks at own cost, 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 include:
- 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
