Undergraduate Summer Study Abroad Program: "Intensive French and Politics"
In partnership with the College of Global Studies at Arcadia University, AGS offers a six-week summer program entitled "Intensive French and Politics: Economics, Diplomacy and the European Union", designed for students who would like to combine their interests in studying the French language with a knowledge of French and European government.
This program is open to both undergraduate and graduate students. The curriculum is divided between daily French language courses in the mornings and international relations seminars in the afternoons. The seminars are oriented around the following four themes:
In addition to the seminars, professors incorporate field research methods. The field research varies each year, but has previously included visits to French courthouses, Institut du Monde Arabe, and the United Nations Educational, Scientific & Cultural Organization (UNESCO).
With the world-famous language methods of the Alliance Française and the intensive classroom teaching and field research methods of AGSIRD, this program offers students an approach in learning that is both rigorous and fun.

All of the things I have learned from the EMSF program are really helpful for my new career as a "young businessman". I just created my company, and thanks to that program, I know how to be efficient, open, and independant.
