The French and Francophone Studies Program encourages students to study abroad in a French-speaking country for a few weeks during the summer after your first year, and then for one or two semesters as a junior. Brandeis students have enrolled in programs in France, Switzerland, Senegal, Madagascar, Egypt, and Morocco. This experience will help you practice your skills, strengthen your proficiency, and develop cultural awareness.
