Program Description:

Program History: In 1984, Duke in France was created by the Department of Romance Studies as a Duke-administered study abroad program. This program introduces American students directly into French institutions of higher education, where they study alongside French students. Today, the program has grown into an educational consortium that includes students from Emory and Cornell Universities, as well as other American colleges and universities. The administrative and academic center, EDUCO, co-managed by the three named universities, is located in the historic Latin Quarter.

Program Overview: Students enroll in four courses, either at the EDUCO Center (two are required for fall only students) or at Paris I, IV, or VII. All courses are taught in French. Students live in French households or student foyers.The program offers excursions and numerous cultural events throughout the semester.

Requirements: Students should have completed one 100-level French class (2.5 years college level French) and an overall GPA of 3.0. Duke only accepts applications from Duke students. Non-consortium students wishing to apply should apply through Emory University. More details and the application can be found at
