UGA à Paris is a joint study abroad program shared with the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences Department of Geography and the School of Public and International Affairs’ Department of International Affair. The program focuses on the economy, politics, culture, and history of France and Western Europe. Students arrive in Paris mid-May 15 and depart in late June. The program is run on the “block” system, meaning students will take one course in each of the two blocks for a total of 6 credit hours.

Spending six weeks in Paris, students will have the opportunity to earn credit towards their degrees while immersing themselves in Parisian and French culture. The program includes overnight trips exploring chateaux in the Loire Valley, traveling across the D-Day beaches in Normandy, visiting the fortified monastery of Mont St-Micheal and viewing the world-famous 11th century Bayeux Tapestry commissioned by William the Conqueror.
