The Berkeley Study Abroad Program offers opportunities for study in France for one semester, one year or for the summer.
The majority of students in the French major and minor programs at UC Berkeley complete some portion of their undergraduate study abroad through the Berkeley Study Abroad Program. Given the increasing globalization of our world, living abroad helps expand their understanding of diverse, culturally rooted attitudes and behaviors. Studying abroad enhances cross-cultural awareness, competency, and adaptability. Students find that living and studying abroad expands their perspective, improves critical thinking, increases independence and better prepares them for a career in an increasingly competitive world.
Interested students should obtain the relevant information early in the semester preceding the one in which they plan to go abroad from:

BE ADVISED: Consult with the Undergraduate Advisor before going abroad (whether through Berkeley Study Abroad or through non-UC sponsored programs) in order to determine whether your program of study will count toward your French Major or Minor.
