The Hollins Abroad-Paris program offers two tracks: one is designed for the student who has taken a lot of French and is interested in an immersion experience. The second, our hybrid track, is for students who want to live and study in Paris but who are not French majors or minors.
Track One: Advanced, full immersion for French majors and minors
Pre-requisite: Four semesters of college-level French (or the equivalent) and GPA of at least 3.0.
Students take four courses in French led by Hollins Abroad-Paris faculty. Additional advanced courses in French in a variety of subject areas are available at local French universities. Students spending a year abroad in the full-immersion track may apply for an internship in the second semester.
Track Two: English/French hybrid for students majoring in other disciplines
Pre-requisite: One year of college-level French or equivalent with a cumulative and French GPA of at least 3.0.
Students take two mandatory core courses led by Hollins Abroad-Paris faculty and two other content courses taught in English in areas such as business, international studies, art history, fine arts, and fashion.
Hollins Abroad-Paris was founded in 1955 and combines outstanding classes, field trips in and around Paris, guided group excursions to other regions of France, and special academic options to provide a comprehensive and immersive French cultural experience. Our full-time director is a Paris native who has studied and taught in the U.S. and is a specialist in French language and literature. She works individually with each student to make sure he or she has the best possible study-abroad experience both academically and personally.
