IFE’s French Field Study and Internship programs are built around in-depth field experience and guided research, for which students prepare through classroom instruction and intercultural training.
These French-language programs are centered on a full-time internship or research placement as the means for linguistic immersion, cross-cultural learning, and a comparative grasp of a student’s own field. These goals are reached though a multi-faceted 18-week academic semester.
