Sponsor: IES Abroad
Location: Nantes, France
The sixth largest city in France, Nantes is large enough to be a bustling cultural and economic center but small enough that IES Abroad Nantes is the only permanent US study abroad program there, offering students ample opportunity to practice their French and integrate into everyday French life as much as possible. Nantes is the perfect setting for those looking for serious integration into French language and culture; it is strongly recommended for students who are currently majoring or minoring in French, or those considering the option. Teaching internships are also available.

- Full Year students must take one “regular” University course (taught in French for local university students) during Fall Quarter and two during Winter/Spring Quarters.
