Framing the Francophone Phenomenon in Paris, France; Rabat, Morocco; and Dakar, Senegal

Overview Academics Support Housing Culture Dates & Fees Application


Now accepting applications for Fall 2021 and Academic Year 2021-22! At this time, we plan to host fall programs in-person. APA has contingency plans in place to adapt to changes in travel. Students should note that a tailored program staying only in France for the semester is plausible if current travel bans remain in effect. Flexible reservation options remain in effect for all programs including 100% deposit refunds in the event that a program is cancelled. Refer to the Ongoing Updates for COVID-19 Response page for more details.

Join a Zoom information session – every Tuesday and Wednesday, an APA team member is available to answer your questions and share program details. Sign up for a time slot.

Take cross-cultural learning to a new level by spending a semester in three iconic Francophone locations: Paris, France; Rabat, Morocco; and Dakar, Senegal. The French language that ties these distinct cities together will allow you to construct your own narrative of these intertwined societies.

I loved that we had could decide what Parisian universities to attend, our metro passes were included in the program fees, we got weekly tickets to all different kinds of shows across Paris (dance, traditional theater/avant garde, concerts), tutoring for French language...All in all, this was an incredible experience and I'm so glad I chose APA.
