General Supervision

Hamilton in France is under the supervision of the Department of French and the Programs Abroad Committee in consultation with the Academic Council of Hamilton College. Hamilton in France is fully accredited and periodically reviewed by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.

Hamilton College French professors direct the program on a rotating basis. The resident director in Paris communicates regularly with the College, which ensures College standards and policies are maintained. Supporting each director are people in the United States and France who have substantial experience in the program and in undergraduate education. Hamilton in France maintains contact with the American Embassy about security all over the world and asks its students to register with the American Embassy in Paris immediately upon arrival.
