France Program

With Lewis & Clark sponsorship, this nonprofit international education association operates a  program site in Strasbourg, France.

All students are registered at the University of Strasbourg. Most participants take some courses at the corresponding Center for French Studies for Foreigners. This is an institute of the public university located on the main campus. In addition, local faculty or staff offer seminar classes each semester (such as: the European Union; Intercultural Research Project which includes an internship: French Civilisation with Provincial Village Study).

Strasbourg Study Center

An office is maintained in the city-centre, a ten minute walk from the main campus. Students have access to most departments of the University of Strasbourg, which is also home to the International Institute for French Studies. Course offerings are also available with the Political Science Institute for students applying in advance.

Program Goals

Our aim is to facilitate individualised integrative learning for each participant, emphasising language and culture through a vigorous academic program-of-study, encouraging community involvement, family stays, and internships or interdisciplinary projects. In this way, we will educate for increased critical perspective, educate to develop self-awareness and educate to see greater reserves of intellectual and moral courage.
