Dickinson in France- Toulouse

Psychology Study Abroad in France

Dickinson in France is a language intensive program designed for students with mastery of French. Students have the opportunity to improve their spoken and written French through courses and individual tutoring at Dickinson’s own facility in Toulouse and to study a wide variety of subjects, including psychology, the  social sciences, humanities, and the physical sciences. Most psychology majors studying in Toulouse take two psychology courses at Universite de Toulouse, Le Mirail, plus two courses at the Dickinson Study Center. On occasion, majors take psychology courses at Institut Catholique de Toulouse. Students in the Toulouse program live with French host families. The hosts are carefully matched with students for compatibility. These hosts open their homes and their tables so that students may discover French culture through their daily life. Excursions to numerous historic and cultural sites around Toulouse are components of the orientation program each semester and the program also includes a four-day excursion to Paris.

Psychology courses offered on the UTM program (whether courses are listed here or not) will be counted as Dickinson courses’ and grades received for these courses will be factored into the student’s Dickinson GPA

* Half credit courses cannot transfer to Dickinson as such. You can combine one half credit course with another half credit course of the same Dickinson course number which will then transfer as a full credit course with that course number. For example, a half credit PSY180(2) can be combined with another half credit PSY180(2) to transfer as a full credit PSY180(2). Or a half credit PSY380 can be combined with another half credit PSY380 to transfer as a full credit PSY380. And so on. Please see Prof. Greg Smith if you have any questions about how the half credit courses might or might not transfer.

Notes on the Universite de Toulouse, Le Mirail (UTM) psychology program:  

  1. Students may take more than one PSYC 180 course at UTM. Courses noted as PSYC 180(1) fulfill the 100-level Group 1 requirement, courses noted as PSYC 180(2) fulfill the 100-level Group 2 requirement, and courses noted as PSYC 180(3) fulfill the 100-level Group 3 requirement.
  2. Students may take more than one PSYC 480 course at UTM.
  3. Because differences exist in offerings between institutions, students are advised to choose psychology courses from the above pre-approved list.While other courses at UTM may be worthwhile and may complement a student's study of psychology, they will not typically transfer for credit as a psychology course. If a student chooses to take a course that has not been pre-approved, that student must request course approval from the Department of Psychology. The student should provide course syllabi, course descriptions, and samples of assignments in order for the Department to determine whether or not the student should receive Psychology credit for that course. Questions about Psychology course credit should be directed to Prof. Greg Smith.

 French students who study psychology at ICT follow a very proscribed sequence of courses. That sequence includes taking several half-credit courses plus some full-credit courses all at the same time. To experience psychology as an ICT psychology major would, Dickinson students should take a series of courses, all from the same level, that total three credits.
