ART 111: History of Western Art
The Nancy program focuses on the language, history and contemporary culture of France. Courses are taken with faculty in the Department of FLE (French as a Foreign Language), and by other faculty from the Université de Lorraine in Nancy. An option for Political Science or International Affairs students is offered by faculty teaching at the Nancy campus of the Institut de Sciences Politiques de Paris (ISP). The Institut des Beaux-Arts and Conservatoire National de Musique occasionally take highly motivated art majors and music majors, respectively. Independent studies, honors work and internship opportunities are also available. Students will reside with carefully chosen host families. The program includes an orientation through Cycle Court, local and regional excursions with LC students staying in Strasbourg through Lewis & Clark College in France (LCCF), as well as a 5-day field trip to Paris, including museum excursions, a play, and other such activities.
The Language Intensive program fulfills the overseas study requirement for the French Studies major and the overseas study requirement for the Foreign Languages major with French as the first language. Both the Language Intensive and General Culture programs also fulfill the two-course international studies requirement.
