FFS 294 - Le Labo: The Culture and Language of the French and Francophone Labs
(Same as BIOL 294 ) This half-unit intensive meets several times over the course of the semester to prepare students wishing to enroll in a course in the sciences while on a Francophone program abroad. Students learn to navigate francophone laboratory setting and cultures while reading scientific articles in the French language and work on building technical vocabulary in a field of their choice. Texts studied depend on student interest, but may include readings from any of the disciplines in the natural sciences and mathematics. Students also learn to write scientific material in the target language. Independent work between course meetings is emphasized. Offered in conjunction with the department of Biology/French and Francophone Studies.
Prerequisite(s): FFS 210 or the equivalent recommended; can be taken simultaneously with 210.
Not offered in 2021/22.
