Why spend January in Paris?
It’s the perfect opportunity to spend your winter break earning credits and experiencing a new culture. And for some students who can’t go abroad during the rest of the year, it’s a chance to study abroad! There are countless reasons to go to Paris any time of year, but consider the charming and beautiful Paris of winter, and read on for information about our J Term program, the courses offered and more.
1. Study art history, architecture or fashion
Paris is your classroom! Take Architecture in a Changing World, Paris 1789-1914 or Fashion in France 18th-21st Century and experience the art, architecture and fashion firsthand in the museums, galleries and institutions of Paris. See the full course descriptions here.
2. Experience the heart of the city
The student residence is situated in a quiet neighborhood in the heart of the 14th district of Paris, close to main monuments and tourist districts such as Montparnasse and the Latin Quarter. With a large reception lobby, wifi, a café and an interior garden and terrace, it’s the perfect place to feel settled after spending your days learning and exploring.
3. See more of France
January programs are short and we are careful not to pack too much into the itinerary, so we planned the perfect day trips to show students more of France without missing out on their time in Paris. Included in the program fee is a trip to the famous Château of Versailles, and there is an optional day trip to the Champagne Region. Students can take part in one or both of these trips, and plan their own travel too with the advice of our expert Resident Directors.
