The Department strongly encourages both majors and minors to spend a year or a semester abroad usually during their junior year. Studying in a foreign country is a life-changing experience, and a very valuable asset for both your academic and life resume. The higher-education institutions we work with provide a variety of courses to choose from, courses that can count towards the timely completion of your degree. Our department also offers a number of scholarships to help you financially. For more information, please contact the French advisors or refer to the CSULB Education Abroad Program website.
