IES: Paris, France

Semester I, Semester II, Full Year
The Institute for the International Education of Students (IES) Paris program combines a rigorous curriculum of French language study with course offerings in a number of academic areas.  Courses are taught exclusively in French by native French faculty.  Language courses in grammar, conversation, phonetics and translation develop student’s ability to communicate effectively in French.

IES area studies courses cover subjects of both historic and contemporary interest.  This program may be of special interest to students of art and art history since it offers a series of unique courses such as “History of French Art” and “History of Architecture in Paris.”  It also offers studio art students the opportunity to study art at Atelier Nicolas Poussin, one of the top art schools in Paris. Students will live with French families.A minimum of four semester college-level French is required for the fall or full year program
