Explore Paris in January 2018!
Paris is one of the greatest cities in the world not only for its history and beauty, but for the streetlife and lifestyle its citizens lead. Students will have the opportunity to get to know Paris intimately, visit a multitude of museums and historic places, and live the life of a Parisian. In fact, we want students to become Parisians to the extent possible and use tools that they acquired in the Fall course in order to make sense of the city of Paris, and hopefully, develop those tools in such a way that they can use them upon their return, to make sense of their own urban space and of the structures that lie beneath the surface appearance of their daily environment. The course is structured to give you the historic, linguistic and cultural tools necessary to be more than an ordinary tourist.
Students will also learn to speak basic French and be able to use their language skills in the real world. Your coursework will take you across the city to do fieldwork, learn about the city and its inhabitants and their way of life, and accomplish tasks for your group projects. Our housing will be in or near the Marais area, within walking distance of Place Bastille, Musée Picasso, Centre Pompidou, Notre Dame, Hôtel de Ville and much more.
