SIUE Faculty-Led Program

Earn 6 SIUE credit hours in French while living in beautiful, historic Quebec City and studying at the prestigious Universite Laval, the second-oldest institution to offer higher education and the first to do so in French in North America.  This five-week faculty-led study abroad program provides a solid linguistic and cultural experience in an environment which is almost 100% French-speaking and offers the best of both worlds: European charm and North American efficiency.  The city of Quebec is a well-preserved historic site where students will have a convenient access to pleasant dining, shopping and cultural experiences.

Students will take weekday morning classes at the Universite Laval where they will be placed in French language courses (conversation, corrective phonetics, grammar) corresponding to their level of proficiency as determined by a placement test.

Your Quebec experience will also include activities organized by the French program at Laval such as short excursions within the walls of le Vieux-quebec (Old Town) and longer trips outside the city on weekends, as well as socio-cultural workshops such as theater, folklore, choir, and cooking.

SIUE faculty member, Dr. Debbie Mann, whose research includes topics in Quebec history, literature and popular culture, will be onsite to provide a framework of logistic support as well as supplemental instruction in the culture and history of Quebec in order to maximize the benefits of the travel-study for students.
