The University of Toulouse offers a bi-lingual history program with selected history courses taught in English. The English Department also teaches in English. Training in French at all levels is also available for international students. The exchange also allows students with fluent French to directly enroll in coursework in all areas and in advanced classes in French as a second language. French language courses are also available for exchange students.
For direct enrollment, students should have an advanced level of French prior to the start of the program. At least 6 semesters at the college level or the equivalent are necessary.
NOTE: All students who study in France for more than 90 days will have to register with Campus France and obtain a Visa de Long Sejour from the French Consulate. Details about this procedure will be provided after acceptance into the program.
Studying abroad at the University of Toulouse-Le Mirail II, either for a semester or full academic year, offers students a fantastic opportunity to expand their liberal arts and humanities education. While most coursework is conducted in French and students with strong French backgrounds will have the chance to pursue more advanced courses, there are many courses available in English. UTM has particularly strong departments in History and English, and both bilingual programs offer courses that count towards a degree at the University at Albany. Course topics range from the French Revolution, to Gender in contemporary France, to American Civilization and Literature, and beyond.
