Program Overview

Program Description:
Imagine yourself studying in Paris, one of the great European capitals! Travel back in time to Haussmann’s Paris as you stroll down grand avenues such as the Champs-Elysees, explore the Place de la Bastille, or visit the breathtaking Eiffel Tower. You can even see the sights while taking one of our most popular classes, “Art & Architecture”. This course uses Paris as your classroom as you visit the architectural wonders of this great city. You’ll have time to not only discover Paris, but to discover France while participating in the weekend excursions to Brittany and Marseille. Want to have an even more immersive experience? Stay with a host family to learn the French way of life firsthand. Not only will your French language skills improve, but you’ll make a lifelong connection to a city and its people that you’ll carry with you for years to come. Don’t worry if you’re not ready to stay with a host family — you can also stay on our Paris campus.

St. John's courses abroad often focus on experiential learning, whether through site visits, Academic Service-Learning, or city-based projects. It’s just another way to help you make the most of your experience, focusing your time on the amazing places where you’ll live and study. No matter the subject, our courses offer you local context—firmly embedded in the host city wherever possible—for understanding the global framework of each discipline. Many classes also include an academic service learning component. Helping to change lives is an inspiring experience – one that sets studying abroad with St. John’s apart. In the past year, our students committed nearly 5,000 hours to service sites worldwide. You’ll make a real difference through activities like teaching English to local students, serving in soup kitchens and mentoring school children. Best of all, volunteering lets you actively engage the people in your new host city.

You’ll visit landmarks, including the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, and Montmartre (where most of Amélie takes place), Sacre-Coeur, Versailles and the American cemetery in Normandy. In addition, students will travel to cities like Reines, Normandy, Marseille, and Marrakesh, Morocco. These faculty-led excursions are designed to meld intellectual adventure with beautiful sites and gastronomical treasures. Want to meet Parisian students? Be sure to participate in the mixers arranged with area schools. Practice your French while making new friends!
