Welcome to Le Petit Prince: Art, Expression, Philosophie, offered each spring at Jacksonville University in Florida. This course fulfills the global studies requirement for all degree types and is considered to be the gateway to the French major or minor.
Over the course of the semester, we read and discuss the Antoine de St.-Exupéry’s classic novella, Le Petit Prince. Pulling in art and culture from Francophone Africa (the frame story takes place in the Sahara!), students continue to build listening, reading, writing, and speaking skills in French through a truly interdisciplinary approach.
This course was originally developed at the University of Kentucky, but it has been modified and expanded for use at JU.
