Program Details

This program enables students to study French language and culture in an immersive setting. Program in Paris complements courses at UVU, and will allow students to make deeper connections with the peoples and cultures of France. Residing with a host family during the program will require students to build new (and authentic) connections with speakers of French. The program itinerary includes a number of visits to critical sites (museums, castles, etc.) that will further illuminate the materials studied during the coursework (both in Paris and in Orem).

  • Paris, France
