Belmont University and the Universite d'Angers have an exchange agreement which allows for student exchanges. Belmont students may study at the Universite d'Angers for an entire academic year (Fall and Spring semesters) or for Spring semester alone. The Universite d'Angers has approximately 18,000 students and offers courses in a wide range of fields, including applied language study, literature study, law, economics, business administration, psychology, biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, computer science, history, and political science. Since all classes will be taught in French, all courses taken may count toward a major or minor in French at Belmont. (The possibility exists that students may take certain courses in Business offered in English at the Universite d'Angers in the foreseeable future.) Credit in other areas may be arranged with prior consent of Belmont faculty teaching in that area of study.
