Students who spend the fall and/or spring semesters at Vanderbilt in France may choose between two options:

Vanderbilt in France: Studies in Language and Culture(s)

Students applying for this track must have completed the equivalent of 3 semesters of college-level French (FR 2203). The program offers intermediate and advanced courses in French language as well as courses in French and Francophone history, literature, and art. Students with advanced proficiency in French may choose to take a course in French at Sciences-Po. All courses in this track count for the minor and major in French. (Fall and spring semesters.)

Vanderbilt in France: France, the E.U., and the Global Market Place

Students applying for this track are not required to have studied French. All students in this track will be required to take one French language course for 6 credits (FREN 1101-1102) and can select from a pre-approved list of courses offered in English at Sciences-Po. Courses in this track **may** satisfy requirements in Economics, History, HOD, MHS, and Political Science, depending on current term offerings at the local university. (Fall and spring semesters.)
**NOTE: Students interested in taking courses offered in both Tracks may do so in consultation with their advisers and with the Director of Vanderbilt in France.

Excursions to Paris and to sites in the south of France are part of the fall and spring progams.
