Brown's programs in France begin with a month-long orientation in September for fall semester and full-year students and in January for spring semester students. The orientation combines language study, information about Paris or Lyon and the French university system, and cultural activities to prepare students for their entry into the French university classroom and for life in France.
Brown's France programs include monthly social gatherings and cultural events (such as attending a theater, ballet, or opera performance). A weekend trip to a historically or culturally important region is scheduled each semester. Recent trips include Burgundy, Brittany, Normandy, and Provence.
