Elizabethtown College has partnerships with three universities in France where students will be able to take coursework in France. While one of the most personally rewarding experiences in life, studying abroad for a year also offers you a competitive edge that many other job seekers will not have.

What do French majors and minors study?

Academic work for the major include language, and literature courses based in French language. One year abroad is also a requirement to complete the major. We have partnerships with universities in places like iconic Strasbourg, France and beautiful Aix-en-Provence for students to experience life and culture in France. Having a partnership with universities abroad allows our students to use any financial aid they receive at Elizabethtown, abroad.

We also encourage double majoring or minoring with a language major and have made this option readily available for students. French minor requirements can be found here. Professors are willing to help students with all aspects of the major and minor and are excited to broaden students understanding of the language and how it compliments other disciplines of study.
