Baylor University/Caen University Exchange

Interested in living abroad for a year or semester? Want to study business in France?

The Baylor University/Caen University (Caen, Lower Normandy) student and faculty exchange program is entering its eighth year of existence. It is an opportunity for Baylor students to spend a semester or year abroad studying either the French language or taking Business courses in English (or combining both pursuits).

The Baylor/Caen program is a non-currency based exchange, which means that Baylor students pay room, board, and academic credit fees to Baylor University before leaving, while Caen exchange students do likewise at their university.

Students spending one or two seemesters in Caen are able to develop their French language skills while being exposed to French and European culture. the Business students would have the added benefit of taking international business courses.

Fall business students are offered a free three-week intensive French language course which begins three weeks prior to the beginning of classes. Moreover, language students can take one or two business classes without cost. Also, business students may take a three-hour credit French class without cost.

The University of Caen courses generally run from mid-October to the end of January, and from early February to the end of May.
