Program Overview

Study in Paris, France and experience the diversity of enduring and dynamic cultural practices and the people who live and negotiate them in daily expressions of pluralism. In Paris one can get on the Metro at an 18th century royal plaza and get off at a North African market or in a Chinese neighborhood. Through courses and excursions, this program will introduce you to the realities of globalization, the impact of transnational migration, the dramas of contemporary and ancient political struggles, and representations of religious traditions and public power as expressed in art and culture. Three Washington University on-site faculty members will participate in the instruction and oversight of the program.  

Eligibility: 3.0 GPA Minimum. There is no language requirement

I loved that the PPR program allowed us to really use the entire city of Paris as our classroom. Each day brought a new Parisian adventure, whether traveling to a new museum or religious institution or visiting a new section in the Louvre. I felt like I really got to know the city throughout my time in Paris."
