CAS LF 300 Living French in Paris: Practical Communication and Current Culture (level 1)
(Recommended for students whose most recent French language course is a fourth- or fifth-semester equivalent) This course aims to refine students’ written and oral expression by improving their overall level of French (grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation) with a special emphasis on better integrating them into their daily, academic or professional environments, through linguistic and cultural activities. English syllabus

CAS LF 342 French Society through Theater, Cinema and Music
Theater, cinema, and popular music as windows on the subtleties of French society and ways of thinking. In-class analysis of plays, films, and song lyrics is integrated with outings and site explorations, to develop an understanding of Paris’s artistic popular history. English syllabus

CAS LF 343 Literary Representations of Paris
Using the city of Paris as a unique text, students will read its monuments and buildings and interpret selected texts devoted to the city (fiction, history, politics). The course aims to teach students not only how to critically engage with and interpret textual material, but also how to read and analyze the physical space around them. Authors include Hugo, Baudelaire, Balzac, and Zola. Visits include Medieval Paris, the Musée Carnavalet, the Louvre, passages & cafés, and the Père Lachaise cemetery, as well as famous Parisian neighborhoods. English Syllabus
