Louvre
Paris, one of the oldest and most fascinating cities in the world, has fired the imagination of artists, writers, and students for centuries. La “Ville Lumière,” Paris is home to countless museums, cafés, and medieval streets that wind around contemporary architecture. A city à decouvrir, Paris is an invitation to experience all the world’s cultures while maintaining a proud and distinctly French feeling. Picture yourself spending a summer studying in the “City of Light,” the “museum without walls,” immersed in history and surrounded by some of the world’s finest art, architecture, and music. As a participant in the Paris Study Abroad Program, you won’t have to imagine these things—you can live them.

The “Capital of the World” is your classroom as you study history where it was made, attend theater and music performances by world-renowned companies and ensembles, write in parks and cafés where Fitzgerald and Hemingway wrote, and learn French immersed in the language. Paris offers all of this and more as part of the study abroad program.

Summer 2021 & COVID-19 Notice: Currently, USG Goes Global is planning for Summer 2021 programs to run on-site in the traditional study abroad faculty-led model. However, there is a chance that travel may not be possible to some or all program locations in Summer 2021 due to COVID-19. USG Goes Global is planning a virtual study abroad back-up plan for each program in case travel is not feasible by next summer. This would mean that if travel isn’t possible, programs and courses will still be conducted online and will include virtual study abroad elements such as guest lecturers from each study abroad location, virtual museum tours, virtual group activities, etc. and students will receive their expected course credit. Note: whether programs operate on-site or virtually, courses that do not reach sufficient enrollment are subject to cancellation. Should programs need to shift to the virtual option, all students will default to virtual study abroad, and all students will still pay tuition ($199/credit hour) but the program fee would be reduced to the $300 deposit rather than the full program fee + airfare cost.


The Estimated Program Cost of $3,900 USD Includes:
-Dormitory accommodations with private room & bathroom at  Cité Universitaire in Paris
-Partial meal plan including 10 meal tickets, welcome dinner, departure dinner, and one 100 Euro grocery card
-Unlimited travel on the Paris metro system including trains, buses, & trams
-Activities & excursions as listed below under the "Activities & Admin" section
-Health insurance policy providing coverage for any medical expenses that may incur
-Some free days & weekends to travel to other locations in Europe

-Tuition, which will be paid directly to each student's home institution. The USG Goes Global tuition rate is $199/credit hour.
-Textbooks or other required course materials
-Ground transport to/from Atlanta airport
-Passport or visa expenses

Courses: Coursework will be completed through a combination of pre-departure lectures, on-site lectures, and course related field trips, coupled with readings, assignments, online content, etc. Coursework will begin in the weeks before program departure, and will continue until the conclusion of the program. Students must take two courses for a total of six credit hours. Students should reach out to their Institutional Representative to find out their home institution's course equivalencies.

Cancellation Policy
USG Goes Global reserves the right to alter or cancel the program at any time due to low enrollment or any other appropriate circumstance (including but not limited to situations that may endanger the health or safety of participants) in USG Goes Global's sole discretion. If USG Goes Global cancels the program, only those fees or costs that USG Goes Global is able to have returned by the third-party service providers will be returned to participants and the program cancellation schedule will still apply. (In the event of a course cancellation by USG Goes Global, any return of a participant's paid tuition will be determined separately by the tuition refund policy of the participant's college or university).
