Graduate Study Overseas

In addition to the funding for research travel offered through the Graduate School, the Department of French and Italian runs a joint exchange program with the Université Sorbonne Nouvelle-Paris 3. Graduate students who participate in the yearlong exchange serve as “lecteurs” at Paris 3, with limited teaching responsibilities and student status. While doctoral candidates in French have priority consideration for the program, students from other departments may also apply. Applicants should have completed the qualifying exam and have fluent English.

For more information about the exchange, please contact the Chair of French and Italian, Natania Meeker, at
