This program gives you the unique opportunity to study at graduate level to earn undergraduate credit. So you will attend graduate classes and get to work closely with an AGS faculty member to develop an undergraduate research project.
Your core seminar incorporates externships, curricular excursions and a capstone research project. You combine the core course with your choice of: three electives from AGS; OR two AGS electives and French language study at Alliance Française; OR two AGS electives and two humanities or social science courses at Institut de Langue et de Culture Françaises (ILCF).
Please be flexible about courses – we can’t guarantee placement in specific courses.
All students must complete a Preliminary Course Form as part of the application process. When completing this form, you should include the Core Course and your electives. You should list all courses in order of preference.
