** Indicates rolling admission application process. Students will be immediately notified of acceptance into this program and be able to complete post-decision materials prior to the term's application deadline.
Students enroll in one, two, or three six-week blocks, taking two courses during each block. This program gives students the flexibility to stay in Paris the entire time or spend other blocks at our Global Institute locations in Berlin, Buenos Aires, Cape Town, Copenhagen, London, Monteverde, Paris, Rio de Janeiro, Rome, Santiago, Shanghai, Sydney, and Yucatán.
Students select one of six academic tracks: Business; Communications, Journalism, and New Media; Global and Community Health; International Relations and Political Science; Language, Literature, and Culture, or STEM and Society.
Most courses are taught in English. Students will be asked to select their track during the application process but will be able to select their courses from all of the course offerings, regardless of selected track (unless the home university has other requirements). All CIEE students, regardless of previous language experience, have the opportunity to learn French. Courses at a variety of proficiency levels are available, and more advanced French speakers can take advantage of French-taught area studies courses.
Faculty from local institutions and CIEE faculty teach CIEE courses. Eligible students studying in Paris for three blocks may be able to enroll in one Universite de Paris course.
