Program Overview
This program immerses our students in the numerous and vast cultural accomplishmeAdvanced Undergraduate) or FREN 501-72 (Graduate) Study Abroad: Workshops at the University of Nice
These afternoon workshops aim to optimize students’ linguistic mastery of French and to enhance their knowledge of French culture, literature, politics or civilization.  Students will choose two from among several workshops on an advanced level and will write a short paper on their chosen subjects, to be graded by Dr. Dezio. Taught entirely in French by University of Nice faculty.

 FREN 470/ FREN 501-71: “Role of the Arts in the Development of French Society” Advanced Undergraduate and Graduate
What enables one nation to assign an important, seminal role to the arts, while another considers them expendable?  Among the many reasons may be that nation’s beliefs about its origins. Non-native Americans have been taught traditionally to equate their origins with industrialization and their coming of age with war.  But other societies have a much older, pre-industrial consciousness of coming into being, often related to an epic poem.  La Chanson de Roland in France is one such work; Gilgamesh in Iraq, The Aeneid in Italy and the many Native American genesis stories are others.  All of these works offer a sense of identity to a people.  What differences might this poetic identification make in a people’s view of the world, in its judgment of others and in its curiosity and desire to be exposed to other cultures? How does pre-industrial memory color present day decision-making, personal or political?  In this course, we will study the development of the arts in France with the goal of discovering the connection between an identity grounded in the arts and the reflection of that identity in the society itself. This class will meet every morning. Taught entirely in French by Professor Dezio.
