Program Description:

Experience Caen

The KIIS France Spring Semester in Caen provides an ideal setting for you to experience French art, culture, history, and language. Caen is located two hours from Paris (easily accessible by train), fifteen minutes from the English Channel, ten minutes from France’s northern beaches, and on the road to famous Mont Saint-Michel. Founded by William the Conqueror in the 11th Century, Caen and its environs are dotted with abbeys, castles, universities and other medieval dwellings. You will study at the Centre d’Enseignement du Francais pour Entrangers (CEFE) at the Universite de Caen. You may enroll in a variety of French-language courses (all levels offered) and have the option of residing with a French homestay family or staying in a university dorm.
