France is a part of your everyday life and you may not even realize it. And no, we’re not talking about French fries-those were invented in Belgium!
First of all, it was France that gave the United States one of its greatest gifts, the Statue of Liberty. But if that isn’t close enough to your heart, you can thank the French for the camera you use to post pictures on your Facebook, the country made huge strides in photography, and even invented cinema.
There are French names all over maps of the United States, and if you’ve ever been to New Orleans, you know just how deeply the French influence can run.
What does all of this mean to you? Not much if you don’t go to France to see all it has to offer you. A study abroad program in France will not only give you an appreciation for French culture, but also a renewed appreciation for your own.
More than 17,000 students study abroad in France each year, and international students now make up 10 percent of the country’s college student population. Higher education in France is given praise around the world for its excellent teachers and research.
When you study abroad in France, you can expect to be treated the same as your native classmates, whether in a lecture or in a ‘travaux diriges,’ or seminar class.
While you can study abroad in France and concentrate on nearly any subject, it’s the students with a passion for the arts, architecture and history that flock to the country in the highest numbers. And that’s no shocker considering that France has been the center of the arts, as well as an international player, for centuries.
