About the Paris Program

Paris Program Introduction

Paris is among the most stimulating cities in the world. With a population of over two million in the metropolitan area and a constant influx of tourists from all over the world, Paris is the touchstone of the French economy. It is also an international hub of cultural and intellectual life that has fascinated writers, poets, and painters for centuries. As a resident of Paris for one or more quarters, you cannot possibly exhaust the wealth of things there are to do and see in the city. By meeting new people, spending time in a French home, investigating French history in its native language and exploring the markets, cafés, and shops particular to each arrondissement, you can begin to make Paris your own.
