"Learning a new language with no previous background or classes was a challenge but so rewarding. The language was one of the many highlights of my abroad experience."
SJU Student Ambassador to France
Katie Tomten '12
During her time at CSB, Katie appreciated the French studies department for its multidisciplinary approach to learning. “The great thing about the program is that it wasn’t completely centered on France and Eurocentric populations,” she says. “It widened my perspective by including all of the [French-speaking] countries." This fall, Katie will head to Massachusetts where she will attend the education policy and management program at Harvard Graduate School of Education. Read her story here.
Three French majors (pictured from L to R: Ruth Becker, Meg Anderson and Kaitlin Heidelberger) were selected to serve as Teaching Assistants of English in schools in France during academic year 2017-2018. Ruth will be headed to the Nantes region, Meg to the Versailles region and Kaitlin to the Caen region. Félicitations à toutes! Et, bon courage!!
