Based in the heart of Paris, the Area Studies and Culture program introduces students to the language, history, politics, and culture of France, placing this fascinating country in a broad regional context in Western Europe. Coursework, language training, excursions, research projects, and the experience of living in a homestay help students to understand the local culture and to confront the issues facing this nation.

The Paris program supports interaction and dialogue between Lexia participants and French faculty and students whenever possible. It also encourages participation in French community events, institutions and family life. No prior knowledge of French is required, as most coursework is in English. Language instruction during the first month of the program is taught intensively to help students develop the language skills and confidence to live and study in, and integrate themselves into, the French community.
Setting Description:
The cultural landscape of Paris has always extended beyond the city's geographical borders: Paris has been the home of some of the world's greatest artists, writers and thinkers in history and today has undergone a six-billion dollar face lift as the unofficial capital of the European Union.
