ISA - Catholic University of Paris

Paris, France

The Catholic University of Paris is located in Paris, France. The Seine River bisects the city into two banks, each with its own character. The Rive Droite, with its spacious boulevards and formal buildings, has a more somber and gentle feeling than the carefree and bohemian Rive Gauche. Students in Paris will be surrounded by beautiful parks and gardens, fascinating art exhibits, cuisine from all corners of the world, and the latest fashions. 

Program of Study 
In both summer and semester programs, CUP is designed to accommodate the language needs of all students.  For semester study, students may choose between option A (12-15 credits), or the month longer option B.  Fees will be slightly higher for option B. Students take a written placement test prior to departure and an additional verbal test upon arrival to determine level. Students learn French with other students from all over the world.  Note that equivalents to Berry's FRE 401, 402 and 406 may not be taken abroad.   

Living Arrangements     
Housing and ten meals per week with a host family is included in this program. Host families will also provide laundry service once a week. 

Students pay Berry College semester tuition. For more, please see the estimated budgets in the side bar. Prices are subject to change, and other fees may apply. Travel grants to France are usually awarded each year. Contact  Dr. Vincent Gregoire for details. 

Students should have completed at least one 300-level Berry College French class and must have a 2.5 GPA. Students take a placement test prior to departing for France. A student's level in France may be lower than their level in the U.S. 

Additional Information 
Students will enjoy excursions to different historic sites throughout France depending on the semester or term visited. If studying in France for longer than 90 days, US citizen students must obtain a student visa prior to going to France to study. Begin this process with  Campus France.
