Cap U students enjoy France while earning university credits

Students from Cap’s France Field School receive a guided tour of Juno Beach.

Eighteen students from Capilano University had the trip of a lifetime this summer while collecting credits for their studies in European history and European business.

As part of Cap’s France Field School, student activities included classroom lectures, guest presentations and field trips to important historic and/or cultural sites. Those sites include Juno Beach, Dieppe, Beaumont-Hamel (Battle of the Sommes), Vimy Ridge, the Louvre, Monet’s Garden and Chantilly Castle. Courses were taught by Cap instructors Anne Watson and Towser Jones. The students also had two 3.5 day weekends for independent travel. Their destinations this year included Barcelona, London, Brussels, Nice, and Amsterdam, to name a few.

Capilano University developed the France Field School in 2010 to provide students with the opportunity to live and study in France. Participating students become residents for the month of July at a partner institution in Amiens, which is one hour north of Paris by train.
