Immerse yourself in an experiential learning opportunity of a lifetime in Rwanda. This course is based in the Department of French Studies in Rwanda and offers UWO students the opportunity to serve in an international social and cultural setting. Course work will prepare students to deal with issues related to the history and culture of Rwanda, and will offer an in-depth look at a number of contemporary social issues. Guest lecturers will be invited to speak to the class. A stay in Rwanda of four to six weeks will be required for the completion of the course. Students will also work with agencies that offer community services in London in order to gain local experiential and service learning before going to Rwanda.

Each spring the Department of French stages a theatrical production under the title of Le Théâtre L’On Donne. Faculty and students work together to stage a performance highlighting French culture and popular literary works. Typically open to graduate students, this year undergraduate students are encouraged to participate to both build their confidence in the French language and to earn credit towards their degree.
