A location with a particularly rich cultural history, Paris is today a diverse and dynamic city influenced by many distinct traditions. The program will explore key aspects of the historical, cultural, and artistic foundations of Paris, through both study and experiential learning in the city. The role of France’s colonial legacy in contemporary Paris will also be explored, culminating in a trip to Morocco, one of the most significant sources of French immigration.
The program will make extensive use of local resources, in both Paris and Morocco. It will provide students with a unique opportunity for language immersion, cultural analysis, and personal growth. In addition to classes and excursions, students may pursue a variety of activities, including sports, dance, music lessons, theater, and art classes.
