Experience Paris

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.

CEA programs in Paris offer numerous opportunities to explore French and Parisian culture through  French language courses taught at any level and excursions to nearby destinations such as Monet's Giverny, Loire Valley Chateaux, or the Mont St. Michel. Savor the culinary culture with wine and cheese tastings, and in cooking lessons where you'll learn how to make crêpes. Depending on the time of year you study abroad, attend the Paris Jazz Festival, Nuit Blanche, Fete de la Musique, the Paris Air Show, Gay Pride, and more.
