Program Overview

Put your French skills to work in the glimmering City of Light! Designed for students looking to improve their understanding of the French language while immersing themselves in Parisian culture, our semester-long hybrid Liberal Arts program is the ideal opportunity to live and learn in France’s incredible capital.  

When class is in session, you’ll choose from courses at CIEE Paris and CIEE’s partner school, Université Sorbonne Nouvelle, where you can select from a broad range of courses to take alongside local and other international students, all taught in French! Additionally, you’ll have the unique opportunity to participate in a for-credit internship in French or an academic independent research project to explore your interests abroad and apply your skills in an academic or professional context.
