BU’s five Paris programs make the most of France’s capital city. The Paris Internship Program, offered fall and spring semesters, provides eight weeks of intensive French-language study and liberal arts courses, followed by seven weeks of full-time internships with organizations in the greater Paris area. French faculty from local universities teach courses on contemporary France specifically designed for students in the BU program at the BU Paris Academic Center, which is walking distance from the Eiffel Tower.
