Blois, France


Each summer, a small group of students will spend four weeks in Blois, France, a beautiful historical city located by the Loire River, a United Nations World Heritage Site. Participants take two three-credit courses in French based on their skill level. All the courses taught as part of the program have been approved by the university senate as Experiential Learning.

Students will stay with French host families and earn six credits to meet the newly implemented Experiential Learning requirement. The group is led by Dr. Jin Lu, Professor of French.
