Why study abroad? It’s a life-changing experience that will give you the language and intercultural skills you need to use French in your career in government, business, media, education or a non-profit agency!


Students declaring a major or minor in the department are encouraged to study abroad. Temple University has a summer program at the Sorbonne in Paris.
