Enjoy international study without leaving home for months at a time or worrying about burdensome financial commitments. This SUNY-accredited course provides a safe two-week travel experience to France!

Features of Studying Abroad with FLCC

First and foremost, you can expect to experience French culture and daily life while having the adventure of a lifetime! Students enrolled in this class travel to France for two weeks in March, with one of those weeks coinciding with Spring Break. Two FLCC faculty members will travel with you, and you’ll stay with a local host family. Your travel experience will feature unique opportunities to enjoy local French cuisine, cultural events, and historical landmarks.

Additionally, you can anticipate:

  • Earning three credit hours of a Humanities elective (SUNY credits transfer as Humanities/Liberal Arts)
  • An extended stay in Paris that will feature guided tours to museums, monuments, cathedrals, palaces, markets, and cultural events
  • Guided excursions to cultural and historical sites in the Brittany and Normandy regions of northwestern France
  • Practical and interactive French language lessons
  • Opportunities to shadow French students during their school day
  • A wide selection of restaurants, markets, and local food
  • Homestay accommodations with local host families, including prepared meals
  • Free time to explore as you please

All FLCC Students Welcome
