Paris – What can we say? Fountains, fashion, cafés, croissants...Paris has something for everyone, but especially art-lovers and budding artists!
Art, Culture, Electives, and French in the City of Light – This study abroad program offers everything for the beginner through advanced French speaker, including abundant elective classes taught in English, art courses offered in English or French, and the opportunity to study French abroad.
Learning in and out of the classroom – A great part of Semester in Paris is learning both in and out of the classroom. All courses taught in English have an excursion component which truly brings the classroom to life throughout Paris and beyond. You won’t just read about a painting or historic monument in class, you’ll go see it in person and really understand the artist’s perspective or historical context. During the first month of your semester, you will also take part in a 3 credit French Language and Civilization class to further deepen your understanding of Francophone culture.
Living with fellow students in great local housing– Live in cool, furnished housing and get to know the other students from all over the US.
