For nearly thirty years, Oregon students have studied on this exchange program in the cosmopolitan city of Lyon. Nestled in the Rhône Valley near the Alps in southeastern France, Lyon is the nation's third largest city. With a population exceeding one million and in close proximity to Switzerland and Italy, Lyon holds the status of a major European cultural, research, and trade center. Founded by the Romans over 2,000 years ago, Lyon is also known for being the center of the silk industry during the Renaissance and of the French Resistance in World War II. Experience the historic and contemporary vibrancy of a city filled with museums, theaters, monuments, and restaurants. Students enjoy the support of an experienced full-time Resident Director in the Centre Oregon in Lyon.  Program options include French language study, Business program, Certification of French and European Studies, and Direct Enrollment in regular university classes with many options offering classes in English.
