Make the City of Light your classroom when you study abroad in Paris. From business to biology, finance to fashion, the art scene to the foodie scene, Paris offers limitless opportunities. France’s capital city has long been a center of intellectual thought, politics, art, and social change, where diversity and modernity thrive alongside centuries of rich history. Home to high fashion, world-renowned cuisine, and some of the world’s best museums and galleries, Paris draws thinkers, artists, writers…and thousands of students from around the world. Studying abroad in Paris at the CEA Center and our three Parisian partner universities offers stimulating approaches to learning by combining in-class work with group projects, co-curricular activities, and excursions, all designed to foster a deeper understanding of local language and culture, as well as a broader global perspective.
Study abroad in France and discover why this country is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. France is home to some of the most iconic monuments on the planet. In Paris alone, you can see Le Pantheon, L’Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame Cathedral, and the ultimate symbol of France, the Eiffel Tower. Stop at Le Pantheon, an 18th century Gothic cathedral turned mausoleum, to visit Voltaire, Rousseau, Victor Hugo, Marie Curie, Emile Zola, and other great French citizens buried there. Drive past L’Arc de Triomphe, a famous monument honoring French veterans killed in the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, at the equally well-known Champs-Élysées avenue. The Notre Dame Cathedral, a 13th century architectural masterpiece and the inspiration for Victor Hugo’s Hunchback novel, welcomes you to admire its stained-glass windows and hear the ringing of its bells. Snap a photo of yourself with new friends next to the one-of-a-kind Eiffel Tower or better yet, climb to the top of it for a view of the French capital that can’t be beat. You can find just as much French history beyond Paris as in it. The extravagant Palace of Versailles, once the home of Queen Marie Antoinette, looks much the same as it did in the 18th century. Walk through its Hall of Mirrors and around the ever-beautiful gardens on the palace grounds, in the footsteps of French royalty. To go all the way back to ancient times, picnic on the riverbank next to the Pont du Gard Roman Aqueduct outside Avignon. Visit the beaches in Normandy where a decisive World War II battle took place.
