Students of French have available the historic academic year or semester exchange program at the Université Jean Moulin, Lyon 3 and the semester or summer program at the Institute for American Universities (IAU) Aix-en-Provence in France.  Ask your faculty instructors about additional immersion, internship, and work opportunities in Francophone countries.

Graduate Reading Lists


Elaina Davis studies Electrical Engineering at the University of Georgia. In the spring of 2020, she completed an Honors Option in French 3030 wherein she explores, through illustrations of Jean de La Fontaine’s fable Le corbeau et le renard and Alphonse de Lamartine’s L’Automne, the narrative potential of Bande dessinée in poetry. Her original creations show a thoughtful use of speech and thought bubbles, narrative captions, iconic representation, and a variety of panel styles set in innovative layouts. – Our congratulations on a job well done!
