The UA in France summer program begins with a week-long excursion in Paris and Versailles, visiting major historical and cultural sites and attending performances, followed by four weeks of concentrated study at the Institut de Touraine in Tours, while living with a French family, in your own private room.

While in Tours, you will get the opportunity to take a day trip to seaside locations at the Mont Saint-Michel and Saint-Malo and visit the famous Renaissance châteaux in the Loire Valley.

Take advantage of this unforgettable learning opportunity to satisfy requirements for a major or minor in French, or for foreign language proficiency for some other program, or just for personal interest and enrichment.
