Admire the intricate beauty of Notre Dame, sit and read in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower, or practice your French at a local patisserie on the way to class. Semester in Paris is perfect for every level of French speaker, from beginners to advanced. You’ll study at the Institut Catholique de Paris with expert professors and fellow study abroad students. A Paris City Tour will let you explore places like Versailles and Fontainebleau. Additionally, this program offers an exclusive bonus: a weekend excursion to another fabulous location in France! What are you waiting for? Saisis le moment!
  • Immerse yourself in the French culture - Grab lunch by Notre Dame, admire the Eiffel Tower at night, and wander the streets with a baquette in hand and macaroons for dessert.
