  • Live in France’s third-largest city, home to an international mix of people and architecture from over two millennia.
  • Study intensive French language, from second-year French and up, and an array of electives taught in both French and English with high-quality faculty in a city that historically has been a major academic center.
  • Take the optional tour/field study to Marseille and the Mediterranean Sea or to Provence and Avignon to set a solid historic and artistic base for your studies of French language and culture.
  • Walk or bike along the banks of the scenic Rhône and Saône rivers; take weekend trips to ski or snowboard in the French Alps; enjoy some of Lyon’s famous home-style cooking; explore shops and make international friends; and enjoy field trips to the French Alps, Bourgogne, Annecy, and Beaujolais.

Language prerequisite: The Lyon program requires an absolute minimum of two semesters of college-level French (or the equivalent). However, four semesters is the recommended prerequisite as all of the courses taught only in French require at least that amount of prior French study. The two-semester minimum is fine for students who want to take the intensive language option (see the next point).

Intensive French option: Note that this program offers the option to study French intensively during the semester, with sequential language courses meeting one at a time. Students may complete up to four courses of French (three in the sequence and a conversation course) during one semester in the program. Intensive language semesters are very rigorous and are only recommended for students who have already shown aptitude in language learning.

Optional field study courses: The program offers (at extra cost) an optional short-term field study to either Marseilles and the Mediterranean or Provence and Avignon (depending on the semester). These courses will each be 0.25 units at Gustavus.
