With a broad curriculum of liberal arts and social science courses ranging from fashion history to health sciences, this program draws upon Paris' rich store of cultural and historical resources to engage you with intellectual, linguistic, and social opportunities in the "City of Light." The backdrop of Left Bank liberal and philosophical studies, mixed with the Parisian tradition of political discourse and intellectual debate, sets the stage for your development of critical thinking skills and global competence.
Renowned for its intellectuals, artists, writers, and revolutionaries, Paris evokes history, allure, and romance. It also serves as the administrative, commercial, and industrial center of France. Home to French haute couture, a rich and varied cuisine, and internationally known landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre, Paris is a fashionable capital that continues to set trends in art, politics, and business.
