- Program Description:
Paris is draped in history, tradition, culture, and glamour, not to mention academia. The Seine River, which bisects the city into its north (Right Bank or "Rive Droite") and south (Left Bank or "Rive Gauche") areas, has long been a source of the city's economic, political, and artistic notoriety. The two banks of the Seine each have distinct personalities- the spacious boulevards and formal buildings of the Right Bank and the cultural and intellectual reputation of the Left Bank- which contribute to the diversity of this magnificent city.
Students at every level of French proficiency can take language, culture, and arts courses at the Institut Catholique de Paris (Catho) and the Cours de Civilisation Française de la Sorbonne (CCFS) or language and business courses at the American Business School Paris (ABSP). Courses are taught in French or English by a diverse staff of international professors and guest lecturers. Gap Year Opportunities also available.

If you are trying to decide which studying abroad program to use definitely use ISA. They plan many cultural and transitional excursions and activities while you are in Paris, which I found beneficial! If you are trying to decide which city to study in
go to Paris, I think you will be surprised with this city. Paris is not a big “busy” city like New York. Everybody is much more relaxed and moves at a slower place which makes it much less intimidating. All of the little neighborhoods within the city are very charming and quaint. Additionally, it’s a very good city to leave from to travel to other places because Charles de Gaulle Airport is so big. Overall I would definitely recommend using ISA Paris! You will be amazed with how welcoming they are and how amazing France is!read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I had the most amazing time studying abroad. It changed my life and I will forever be grateful for my opportunity. I met friends that I will keep in contact with for the rest of my life. I loved being able to learn from another culture and was able to
grow so much by learning to be independent. I would recommend study abroad to every student.read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
