France Program

With Lewis & Clark sponsorship, this non-profit international education association operates two program sites in France, Nancy and Strasbourg. All students are registered at the University of Nancy or the University of Strasbourg. Most participants take some courses at the corresponding Center for French Studies for Foreigners. In each case, 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: European Union; French Writing Workshop & Provincial Village Study; Arts & Ideas).

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.

A Semester Portfolio is required of all students, which will provide documentation from both course work and non-curricular learning, including writing on topics that will demonstrate increased reflection. Internships are available for capable, dedicated and qualified students. A few examples:

Nancy Center
  • International Relations Office of the City of Nancy
  • Opera of Nancy and Lorraine
  • Catholic Charities
  • Amnesty International
  • University Hospital (surgery)
