The KIIS Paris I summer program offers Paris as its classroom, with a selection of courses designed to take full advantage of the city’s artistic treasures, intriguing history, respected literary traditions, and other cultural riches. With its captivating history, as well as its reputation for good taste, fine cuisine, high fashion and legendary sports, Paris has something for everyone.
With a month in Paris, students have the time to become familiar with this modern, animated city, so well known for setting trends while upholding established traditions. Students are able to explore not only Paris’s major attractions, but can discover for themselves the city’s true hidden gems, explore France and travel to neighboring countries during their spare-time. Rather than hurriedly race to taste Paris’s countless delights, program participants may savor those irresistible moments that are far too rich to be enjoyed at a tourist’s pace. A day-long excursion to Normandy is planned to visit iconic D-Day sites, such as Omaha Beach and Pointe du Hoc.
The month-long Paris program is designed to offer students a balance between structured time for classes, program activities, and excursions and unstructured time for study, completion of group projects, and pursuit of individual interests. The Paris I program affords students ample opportunities to gain cultural insights and improve language skills. Three-day weekends give you the chance to travel throughout France and Europe if you wish.
By living for a month in France’s political, cultural, and economic center, students can enjoy the fast-paced lifestyle of the renowned "city of lights." An unlimited Carte Orange metro/bus pass facilitates transportation within the city, allowing students to personalize their "Paris adventure.”
Please note: No French is required for this program (with the exception of optional French courses). Students with little or no French-language skills may enroll in any of the program’s English-language course offerings. Students with advanced French-language skills (i.e. those who have completed at least 12 hours of college-level French or the equivalent at time of departure) may enroll in any of the program’s English-language offerings as well as any of the upper-division French-language courses— the choice is entirely yours.
