Thank you for your interest in the EWU Summer Study Abroad Program in France.

Goals of the Program:

The main goal of the program is the development of language skills.

The second goal of the program is to offer students as much cultural exposure as time permits. The city of Nice, built on several hills, has many attractions - the Old Town, the Chagall and Matisse Museums, the waterfront and beaches, open air markets and cafes, to mention just a few. Many excursions in the region are planned by the University of Nice.

The third goal of the program is to give teachers the opportunity to work toward the Master's of Education non-thesis degree with a major in French at Eastern Washington University. These candidates must attend the Institute in Nice twice and take one summer quarter at EWU. Candidates may take an extra five credits each summer in Independent Studies (French 499 or 599) for a total of 15 credits per summer.
