There's no better way to learn French than to travel to places where French is spoken. Our One Course At A Time calendar allows us to offer block-long courses to Francophone destinations such Aix-en-Provence, Martinique, and Morocco without affecting other coursework. For longer adventures, we have established relationships with other programs for study in France or other parts of the French-speaking world.
Intermediate French and Advanced Conversation Abroad
We sponsor block-long study abroad courses every other year, led by a faculty member from our department. Learn more about our recent courses by visiting the links below.

Scholarships for study abroad
Apply for one of the Off-Campus Studies Scholarships by the March deadline. Specific scholarships are given to students studying French abroad. Good luck!
Transferring credit for off-campus study courses
You'll need to submit a Petition(s) for Transfer of Credit for your off-campus study course. For French courses, meet with your French professor to complete your petition(s) early in the process. Submitting these forms to the Registrar before you travel is the best way to ensure that credit you earn for an off-campus course can go towards your Cornell degree.
