The Office of International Engagement and the Modern Languages & Literatures Department are pleased to announce the re-activation of one of Montclair State University’s oldest study abroad programs.  Featuring our friendly neighbor to the north, Canada’s Quebec City makes it possible to study abroad without the expense of a plane ticket and still experience another culture and a foreign language.

Université Laval, located in Quebec City, Canada, collaborated in an exchange program with Montclair State University (known then as Montclair State Teachers College) in 1941, when French major Anita Magistro- was the first student sent by Montclair to represent the University. (The Anita Magistro Udell Scholarship for Language Majors was established in her honor. See link for more details)

The ten day Quebec City trip was taken over the 1941 Christmas Holiday by Magistro and some of her fellow students and was led by Prof. Valentine Tonone.  The trip included a tour of Quebec’s historic quarter, various receptions, and an official dinner.  The Montclair State University students also travelled from Quebec City to Les Eboulements, a village approximately 70 miles away.  There, the Montclair students performed and taught the local children traditional Canadian dances.

The relationship between Montclair State University and Université Laval was reactivated recently thanks to the efforts of Prof. Laurence Jay-Rayon of Modern Languages and Literature. Students have newly expanded opportunities for study abroad in Quebec City Canada for semester-long and inexpensive summer programs. For further information about these opportunities
