French Studies Majors at Colby College have a wide variety of choices when it comes to selecting a destination to complete their required semester(s) abroad; while many students choose to study in Paris or other cities in France, others opt for countries like Senegal, Madagascar, and Cameroon. Additionally, some students take advantage of Colby’s program in Dijon either during JanPlan or in the fall of their freshman year as a supplement to their junior experience abroad. Listed below are the Department’s current French Studies Majors and their chosen study abroad destinations. A list of past locations of graduates is also included.
