Highlights of this French programme at Manchester University

  • Study abroad is a key component of our language major and minor. French majors and minors study in Strasbourg, France. German minors study in Marburg, Germany. And Spanish-speaking majors and minors study in Barcelona, Spain; Xalapa, Mexico; or Quito, Ecuador. In all cases, students receive extensive training in advanced language skills, become integrated into the local culture, and have access to a range of courses on topics beyond language instruction. January travel courses to France and Spain are offered, too.
  • The Dillon Roush Traxler and Macon Dale Traxler Scholarship helps language majors and minors engaged in international study. Awarded annually, the scholarship defrays some of the extra expenses inherent in international study and supports students for whom the experience might not be possible otherwise.
  • The Beulah E. Book Lecture Series brings scholars to campus to speak on issues such as language pedagogy, international politics, and linguistics.
  • The Heritage Speaker Proficiency Program recognizes the unique situation of students for whom English is a second language. The department offers the possibility of earning credits through a proficiency exam. Students who are interested should contact Dr. Yañez or Dr. DeVries.
