Program Description:
The Department of Romance Studies and the Global Education Office for Undergraduates of Duke University are pleased to offer a six-week, two-course program in French culture, literature, and language. The session will take in place in Paris but will also include excursions to nearby châteaux, as well as a weekend trip to the South of France. The program will be directed by  Dr. Christelle Gonthier of Duke’s Department of Romance Studies.

A "museum without walls", Paris has sparked the intellectual imagination of artists, writers, and students for centuries. By immersing students in the world of contemporary Paris, this intensive program offers unique insight into France's historical, literary, and cultural traditions. In addition to studying classical and contemporary works, students will participate in weekly cultural activities where they will perfect their French in the context of everyday life.  Using the city as an extension of the classroom, they will visit musées, théâtres, cafés, and quartiers recorded in the cultural texts that they will study.  Students on this program will gain a deeper knowledge and appreciation of the geography, history, and people that make up the 'City of Light'.
