Study Away France 2018 will introduce and evolve our understanding of contemporary French culture as related to the areas of art, cuisine, and language. Contemporary French Culture: Art, Cuisine, and Language is also unique in its exploration of various regions of France – the North and the South of France, including the cities of Paris, Nice, and Arles. Our exploratory studies and travels will include: cuisine lessons and open-air market visits; Street Art studies; museum and gallery visits in Paris and Nice with renowned European art historians, curators, and BBC affiliates; the International Photography and Film Festival in Arles; and more!! Our investigations will focus on perception, reflection, and societal effects, in addition to the visual arts as a vehicle for social change.

The seven colleges at Missouri State University are pleased to announce their respective Study Away Scholarships. A scholarship fund has been established by MSU’s President, International Programs, and the respective college to assist students with their study abroad. Search available college scholarships here!
