About The Program

Using the city as an extended classroom, build strong French language skills. Excursions to  world-famous museums and cultural sites enrich studies of language, history and art.

Where you'll study

Courses for this program are held at the UC Center in Paris. The complex houses classrooms, a computer lab, a library, and a resource center where you can pick up mail and use WiFi. The building sits deep within a courtyard off of the rue du Faubourg St. Antoine, a street formerly famous for interior designers and furniture factories. One of the city’s most vibrant and diverse areas, the neighborhood is home to the Opéra Bastille and the historical Place de la Bastille. Unattached to a university, the city itself is incorporated into coursework as a “living laboratory” with site visits, local cultural activities, and lectures from prominent scholars based in Paris. You will find Paris to be a fascinating mix of cultures with many layers where the old and the new intersect on a daily basis. Within easy reach of metro stops, train stations, and bus lines, the UC Center offers convenient and quick access to all of the city and its suburbs.
