When you are ready to put your language skills to the test, Middlebury has options for you to continue your studies!

Middlebury Schools Abroad

The School in France offers both academic-year and semesterlong programs in three locations:

  • Bordeaux: A larger city with a rich culinary and wine growing tradition.
  • Paris: The cosmopolitan capital at the heart of France.
  • Poitiers: A quintessential French town with a strong university and student culture.  

The School in Cameroon offers an experience in African culture with studies conducted in French. Yaoundé, the capital of Cameroon, is an ideal place for immersion into Francophone African life. Based at the Université catholique de l’Afrique centrale, with all classes conducted entirely in French, students on the Middlebury program in Cameroon will be able to take courses in several disciplines in the humanities and social sciences.

Study Abroad

In addition to Middlebury Schools Abroad, there are other externally sponsored programs available to you as well. Please contact Study Abroad to learn more about those options.

Students from any academic discipline planning to study abroad in France, Cameroon, or another study abroad program must have completed two full years of college credit by the time they undertake their study abroad; they must have successfully completed at least one course beyond FREN 0209/0210 (either FREN 0220, 0221, 0222, 0224, or 0230) by the time they arrive abroad; and they must have an average in French of at least B.

Middlebury Language Schools

Though located in Vermont, the Language Schools provide an immersive experience comparable to that of a semester abroad.

Since 1915, Middlebury Language Schools has been one of the nation’s preeminent language learning programs. Whether you’re a beginning language learner or working toward a master’s degree, our time-tested programs offer a range of options and opportunities.
