2005 Summer Study Abroad (UT in France)
ABOUT THE UT IN FRANCE PROGRAM
The UT IN FRANCE summer study program is co-sponsored by the UT Department of Modern Foreign Languages and Literatures (MFLL) and the University of Caen in Normandy, France. In four weeks, through both course work and extracurricular experience and activities, students earn six hours of college credit while being introduced to all aspects of French language and culture.
The program begins with a one-week study tour of Paris, after which participants move on to Caen where they live with a French family (meals included) while studying French at a French university (courses taught by French professors who specialize in French as a foreign language). While in Caen, participants also engage in a variety of cultural activities including organized excursions to important historical sites in Normandy. A UTK faculty member and graduate student assistant accompany the students in Paris and Caen.
Any enthusiastic student of French having completed the equivalent of UTKs French 112 or above from any college in the USA may apply. Applicants must be approved by UTKs Center for International Education (CIE) and by program director.
Courses in Caen transfer to UTK for six (6) hours of undergraduate credit. Courses offered: French 211 (3 hours), French 212 (3 hours);French 491 (3-6 hours, "Foreign Study"). Students register for: 211 & 212, or 212 and 491, or 2 sections of 491. 211 and 212 must be taken for a grade; French 491 may be taken for either a grade or pass/fail. Grades are determined by faculty director based on students overall work in France, including participation in group activities, course work in Caen, and journal writing.
