Intensive French in Dijon (Summer 2013)

Study French in the heart of Burgundy

Every two years, Augustana conducts a six-week summer program in France with intensive study of the French language, civilization, and literature at the l'Université de Bourgogne in Dijon. During the stay at the university, students enjoy a wide range of cultural activities both on campus and in the community, and often spend additional time traveling in France.  Students on the 2013 program will have the option to live either in university housing or to join a family for a home stay experience.




Students must have completed one year of college French or the equivalent by the time of departure. All coursework is taught in French and is offered at the 200 or 300 level.

This program is open to Augustana and non-Augustana students.  Non-Augustana students should contact the Office of International & Off-Campus Programs for information on how to apply.  Non-Augustana students may apply through February 15th for this program.


All students will receive 6 credits of French. These are divided between Culture & Civilization (3 credits: either 210 or 310) and Language (Intermediate 221-222-223 or Advanced 321-322-323). On-site placement will determine the appropriate language level for all participants. Students who receive credit for French 310 will also receive a PP learning perspective for this course.


June 30-August 8
