How to apply?

Students should reach out to their university which will contact us directly  to nominate students.

You need to make sure that your university has an agreement with our department beforehand.
Once the nominations have been received from the home university, we will get in touch to inform you of the relevant application procedures and deadlines.
Your application and the learning agreement that you will sign will be verified (IMPORTANT: 51% of the courses selected MUST be taken in the Societies, Cultures and Modern Languages Department).

All available courses can be found in the online UGA academic catalog.
The classes offered by the Department of Societies, Culture and Modern Languages are divided between Applied Foreign Languages (LEA) and Regional and Foreign Civilizations, Literatures and Languages (LLCER). The first track focuses on the business world and supposes being proficient in two foreign languages whereas the second track focuses rather on the Humanities. Several MA programmes are also proposed, on topics related both to LEA and to LLCER :

Fields of studies:
Social Sciences (FR), Translation and cultural studies, History, Literature, Language skills, Linguistics

Languages of instruction:

To attend classes at the Societies, Cultures and Modern languages department as an exchange student, a minimum French proficiency level of B1 is mandatory.
No official certification is required, but your home university will have to provide a formal document or cover letter certifying that you indeed have the required level of proficiency in French.
