Study Abroad 2024: Québec City & Montréal, Canada

French Language Study Abroad 

This program is a language and cultural immersion experience in the French-speaking Canadian province of Québec. Students take language classes and explore the unique history of French in Canada through excursions and field trips. A two-week stay in the capital city of Québec traces the founding of Canada as New France in the 16th century and explores the often tumultuous French/English relationship that continues today. Students will travel to the cosmopolitan city of Montréal, the largest Francophone city outside of France, and experience the vibrant mix of cultures and language.
