With a broad curriculum of liberal arts and social science courses ranging from fashion history to health sciences, this program draws upon Paris' rich store of cultural and historical resources to engage you with intellectual, linguistic, and social opportunities in the "City of Light." The backdrop of Left Bank liberal and philosophical studies, mixed with the Parisian tradition of political discourse and intellectual debate, sets the stage for your development of critical thinking skills and global competence.
Renowned for its intellectuals, artists, writers, and revolutionaries, Paris evokes history, allure, and romance. It also serves as the administrative, commercial, and industrial center of France. Home to French haute couture, a rich and varied cuisine, and internationally known landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre, Paris is a fashionable capital that continues to set trends in art, politics, and business.
CEA programs in Paris offer numerous opportunities to explore French and Parisian culture through multiple housing options, French language courses taught at any level, and excursions to nearby destinations such as Monet's Giverny, Loire Valley Chateaux, or the Mont St. Michel. Savor the culinary culture with wine and cheese tastings, and in cooking lessons where you'll learn how to make crêpes. Depending on the time of year you study abroad, attend the Paris Jazz Festival, Nuit Blanche, Fete de la Musique, the Paris Air Show, Gay Pride, and more.
