EDUCO

Semester or Year in Paris
What better place to learn French than Paris?  EDUCO, a consortium of Emory, Duke, Cornell, and Tulane Universities, offers unparalled academic and cultural immersion through semester-long or year-long programs in Paris.  Students have the unique opportunity to take courses through direct enrollment at the University of Paris as well as those offered at the EDUCO Center. Selected students may study at the renowned Institut des Sciences Politiques (Sciences Po). In addition, participants enjoy group excursions to the theater, art museums, and gastronomical tastings.

This program is by no means limited to French majors.  Courses in all disciplines, such as art history, history, economics, and the sciences are available at the University of Paris; on-site advisors work carefully with students to help them find classes that will satisfy the requirements of various departments at Emory. In addition, tutors are provided to help students who encounter any difficulty in their coursework.

Don’t pass up this wonderful opportunity, which, for most people, comes only once in a lifetime. Imagine yourself spending an extended period of time in Paris attending university classes with your French peers, and getting to know French culture and the city of Paris intimately through daily experience in the museums, cafés, shops, theaters, concerts, parks, and, of course, the Metro.
