FRIT-F 561: Studies in French Civilization: Contemporary France on Film

Each teacher must confirm with their dual credit provider that this course will count for credentialing and does not overlap content of previous courses taken. If we do not receive confirmation before our registration window closes, we will remove teachers from the course.

This is an online synchronous course that meets Mondays and Wednesdays from 12-2 PM Central / 1-3 PM Eastern.

This course offers a critical overview of contemporary French identity, society and politics that aims to distance you from picturesque tourist stereotypes by adopting a comparative perspective that juxtaposes France and the USA. In addition to questioning the mentalities, behaviors, and traditional values of the French, we will study social and political institutions: the structure and functioning of the French government and political culture.

Please review the syllabus for full course information.

Term: This is a Full Semester course. Participants may register for one Full Semester course OR one course each in Summer I and Summer II.
