Each semester, you'll enroll in 1 French language class; if you're already a fluent French speaker, you may choose another language class, such as Spanish, German, or Chinese. You'll also enroll in 6-7 business courses within the selected track.
Each track has prerequisites:
Classes meet for 15-30 contact hours/1.25-2.5 credits. You may earn a total of 15 credits (up to 180 contact hours) per semester and 30 credits (up to 360 contact hours) per academic year.
Language and business courses meet daily, Monday-Friday. Active learning components required by your courses may be scheduled for Fridays.
You'll take a language placement exam after you arrive in Grenoble and be enrolled in a language course based on the results. You'll be automatically enrolled in business courses. To ensure that you receive credit for the language level you place into, have your home university pre-approve courses at several levels before you leave for France. Please consult with your academic advisor at your home university on credit pre-approval guidelines
I made friends I will have for the rest of my life. I learned a lot about not only France, but who I am and what I am capable of. Everybody should have the chance to study abroad because there are so many benefits.
