2013 Montpellier, France Summer Program

The College of William & Mary’s 2013 summer program in Montpellier offers students the chance to immerse themselves in French language, literature and culture. This program may begin with a 4-day tour of Paris, where students will have the opportunity to visit some of the world’s greatest museums, monuments and palaces.

The Institut des Études Françaises pour les Étrangers (I.E.F.E.) is the host institute of this month-long intensive summer program. Participating students live with French families in Montpellier, located in the Languedoc-Roussillon region of France, just a few miles from the Mediterranean.  In addition to taking classes, students will conduct an independent research project examining life in either Montpellier, or France and Europe. There will be excursions to cultural and historic sites around the region.

There is a required 1 credit course to be taken in Spring 2013, which you will be registered for following your acceptance into the program. This course is designed specifically for students going on the summer program
and is intended to enhance your cross-cultural understanding of Montpellier and to cover a variety of pre-departure questions. The scheduling of this course will be dependent on the class times possible for the program participants.

One of France’s fastest growing cities, Montpellier offers a relaxed atmosphere and treasures its 1,000-year-old history, preserved in an unusual medieval cathedral, an 18th century aqueduct and water tower set in formal gardens, and an elegant Old Quarter of 17th and 18th century residences.
