About the Program

This Majors Abroad Program (MAP) has an interdisciplinary focus on politics, history, international relations, and French language and culture.

The Major in French and Francophone Studies strongly encourages the student to spend one or two semesters abroad in France, at Hollins University in Paris. Visit studyabroad.arcadia.edu for more information. Students may choose to spend a semester abroad in another French speaking region or country, for instance, at l’Universite de Laval, Quebec.

If due to extenuating circumstances a student cannot study abroad for the required year to complete the MAP, a petition may be submitted for an Individualized Major, which would include only one semester abroad. This petition must be submitted by the beginning of the student’s junior year to the Academic Adviser for Individualized Majors in the Office of Graduate and Undergraduate Studies, for review by that Adviser and the UAPC Chair.


(44 credits)

Note: Students with no background in French must complete the series FR 101 , FR 102 , FR 201  before entering the major. Students who have a previous knowledge of French will be placed according to their performance on the French placement inventory.
