Students in Cellar

European Council

Paris, France

I was not only able to see historic landmarks, but I got to understand their significance and what they mean to locals. - Hannah R., 2016 participant

This program is for students wishing to experience a rich and historical culture for a summer.  Dr. Brian Carroll will teach Travel Writing and Visual Rhetoric on this program in 2017.

June 30-August 6, 2017 

The European Council offers a variety of classes in many different areas of study taught by Georgia professors. Each class is the equivalent to 3 credit hours at Berry College, and Berry students are required to enroll in two 3-hour classes. All courses are considered to be Berry College credit, not transient credit.  Learn how to register.  Check out the list of pre-approved classes.

Students will be given single dormitory rooms with private baths in Citè Universitè, a one-of-a kind meeting place that receives more than 135,000 visitors from over 100 countries each year.
