French Language & Liberal Arts at the Sorbonne:
How to Apply

Binghamton University and SUNY Oswego co-sponsor the Paris Program. In this arrangement Binghamton provides information and advising to students. Professors Carrol Coates (777-4632) and Dora Polachek (777-6507) of the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures are best able to answer students' questions and to provide detailed information about the program. Advisors in the Office of International Programs can also provide information.

Binghamton students should submit all application materials to the Office of International Education at SUNY Oswego. The application and more information about the program is available on SUNY Oswego's web site. Applications for fall semester are due April 1 for Fall Semester 2012 and October 15 for the spring semester 2012. Oswego makes all the travel and study abroad arrangements for students and administers the program in Paris, therefore many questions about housing, excursions, courses, etc. are best answered there.

Applicants must have a GPA of 2.5 or higher and typically will have completed at least one year of French. Acceptance is based on the student's academic standing, recommendations and personal study statement.
Note: Students at the beginning level of French may apply and be considered for the introductory French course of study at the Sorbonne. Beginning students take only the Director's course and the language course, for a total of 12 credits.

This information is subject to change without notice. The State University of New York at Binghamton is strongly committed to affirmative action. It offers access to services and recruits students and employees without regard to race, color, sex, religion, age, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or national origin.
