Paris, France

The Paris Internship Program offers a semester of study and work in the hub of French and European business and culture. The program combines an internship with intensive French-language study and liberal arts courses. French faculty from local universities teach courses on contemporary France that are specifically designed for students in the Boston University program.

After completing the program's seven-week core phase, students spend the final eight weeks in full-time internships with organizations in the greater Paris area, while also attending individual writing tutorials.
