About the Program

Program Description

Designed for students of all language levels who want to distinguish themselves in an evolving global marketplace, the Internship in Paris program allows you to develop practical skills in fields such as business, communication, hospitality, marketing, international relations, the arts and more.  Our strong academic focus and personalized placements dedicated to meaningful experiences that make a real impact, allow you to give your career a boost while gaining the international experience you’ve been seeking. Learn more about the benefits of a CEA internship.

Program Structure

CEA’s summer internship program includes an academic seminar and an internship placement. The internship seminar meets for 32 contact hours and you'll spend 240 hours at your internship placement over 8 weeks. Together, your seminar and internship placement are worth 6 credits. Your internship placement hours may vary depending on industry standards for your career field and will be determined after you arrive. 

We strongly recommended that you apply as soon as possible. Internship positions are selective; students who demonstrate both professionalism and commitment throughout the process are most successful in securing placements.

The placement process involves three Skype or phone interviews: a screening interview with your site specialist, a job placement interview with your on-site internship coordinator, and a final interview with your host site supervisor. The host site retains the final decision regarding placements, so it’s important that your interviews reflect your maturity, adaptability, curiosity, and commitment to both your career interests and the host organization. Upon successfully completing your on-site placement coordinator interview, CEA guarantees you a placement based on the personal, professional, and cross-cultural goals reflected in your interview. All placements will be secured two weeks prior to arrival. 

Upon placement, you'll automatically be enrolled in your internship course.

If you have confirmed an internship placement in Paris through independent contacts, we can also support you in securing important logistics such as visas, housing, and credit. Contact an admissions counselor for more details.

Where You'll Study

Located in the heart of the vibrant Marais District, the CEA Paris Center offers small class sizes and a wide range of electives taught in English. Choose the courses that best align with your academic, career, and personal interests. Through a grant program geared to local students, you'll have the opportunity to sit alongside French students in a few of your classes.

Where You'll Stay

When you study abroad in Paris, you can choose CEA housing or arrange your own independent housing. CEA housing assignments are based on availability and confirmation date; we make every effort to match your housing requests, but we can’t guarantee housing preferences.
