UGA à Paris:
Known as the City of Light, Paris is one of the world’s great cities, boasting numerous historical, cultural, and artistic sites. You will be able to visit world-renowned locations, including Notre Dame Cathedral, the Louvre, and the Eiffel Tower. Students can immerse themselves in Paris’s museums, galleries, and neighborhoods while exploring the Latin Quarter, the Marais, Montmartre, the Bastille, Les Invalides, the Champs Elysées, or the designer shops on the rue Faubourg St. Honoré. There are also many opportunities for independent travel. Paris is well served by train and air service, allowing students to travel across Europe on the three-day weekends and during the four-day break between the blocks.
This program focuses upon the economy, politics, culture, and history of France and Western Europe. Students arrive in Paris on May 15 and depart on June 26. The program is run on the “block” system and students will take one course in each of the two blocks for a total of 6 credit hours. Spending six weeks in Paris, students will not only have the opportunity to gain credit towards their degrees but also soak up aspects of Parisian and French culture. The program also includes overnight trips to the Loire Valley, where students will visit several chateaux, and to Normandy, where you will see some of the beaches used during the D-Day landings of June 6, 1944, together with the world-famous 11th century Bayeux Tapestry commissioned by William the Conqueror and the fortified monastery of Mont St-Michel.
