French - Students Abroad on Villard Mountain


Study Abroad

The French program at the University of Denver encourages all of its students to study abroad in a French-speaking country. DU has partnered with several exceptional programs around the world, from France to Québec, Belgium to Madagascar.

Through the Cherrington Global Scholars program, every eligible junior or senior has the chance to take advantage of this unique opportunity. To see currently offered programs, and for general information, visit the Cherrington Global Scholars website.

Additionally, students may be interested in these summer study abroad programs:
