Paris is the classroom in this theatre, culture and art program, which exposes students to the city's artistic treasures, fascinating history, cultural riches and hidden secrets. From Notre Dame to Sacre Coeur, Comedie-Francaise to the Paris Opera, and the Palace of Versailles to Montmartre, students do not merely explore Paris - they make it their own.
With its captivating history, as well as its reputation for good taste, fine cuisine, high fashion and legendary art, Paris will broaden and deepen each student's education, regardless of their major. Students will reside in the heart of the romantic Left Bank in the Latin Quarter of Paris, just a few short blocks from Notre Dame Cathedral.
