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 River 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. 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 
Room and board with a host family is included in the program price. Host families will provide meals every day and laundry service once a week. 

Students pay Berry College semester tuition. Current housing and meals fee is $4200, which includes 10 meals per week. Insurance costs $15 per week. Prices are subject to change, and other fees may apply. Two travel grants to France are 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.
