Academics

The undergraduate program in Paris provides a rich introduction to historic and present-day France through classroom studies and diverse extracurricular activities. Intensive French language classes, offered at all levels, are taught by instructors with native proficiency. The program is rounded out by courses in French culture and civilization, offered in both English & French, with a particular focus on the arts. All courses make use of the resources of the city with visits to museums, neighborhood tours, and other outings.
