Academics

Click to Open

Academics

Students enroll in one, two, or three six-week blocks, taking two courses during each block. This program gives students the flexibility to stay in Paris the entire time or spend other blocks at our Global Institute locations in Berlin, Buenos Aires, Cape Town, Copenhagen, London, Monteverde, Paris, Rome, Santiago, Shanghai, Sydney, and Yucatán.

Students select one of six academic tracks: Business; Communications, Journalism, and New Media; Global and Community Health; International Relations and Political Science; Language, Literature, and Culture, or STEM and Society.

Most courses are taught in English. Students will be asked to select their track during the application process but will be able to select their courses from all of the course offerings, regardless of selected track (unless the home university has other requirements). All CIEE students, regardless of previous language experience, have the opportunity to learn French. Courses at a variety of proficiency levels are available, and more advanced French speakers can take advantage of French-taught area studies courses.

Faculty from local institutions and CIEE faculty teach CIEE courses. Eligible students studying in Paris for three blocks may be able to enroll in one Universite de Paris course.

GPA

Students need to have a GPA of at least 2.5.

Students planning to take a direct enrollment class at any of the University of Paris institutions must have at least a 3.0 GPA.

Language Prerequisites

There are no specific language requirements for this program.

Program Requirements

Students are required to enroll in two courses each block. Students attending the program for all three blocks in a semester may select one block in which to enroll in only one course.

Program Credit

  • One block: 6 U.S semester/9 quarter credits
  • Two blocks: 12 U.S. semester/18 quarter credits
  • Three blocks: 15-18 U.S. semester/22.5-27 quarter credits

Course Credit

  • CIEE courses: typically, 3 U.S. semester/4.5 quarter credits; 45 contact hours
    • language courses: 3 U.S. semester/4.5 quarter credits; 60 contact hours
  • CIEE Internship: 3 U.S. semester/4.5 quarter credits; 15 seminar hours, 100-120 internship placement hours
  • CIEE Directed Independent Research: 3 U.S. semester/4.5 quarter credits; 15 contact hours, 100-120 research hours
  • CIEE Service-Learning Project: 3 U.S. semester/4.5 quarter credits; 15 seminar hours, 90 service hours

Academic Culture

Each six-week course is a full semester in content, so the pace is accelerated, and the workload is demanding. CIEE courses are designed to follow U.S. academic culture and standards. The class environment typically features a combination of traditional lecture and discussion with co-curricular excursions and activities. Heavy emphasis is placed on student participation. To avoid falling behind, students should not plan personal travel out of Paris when classes are in session and plan trips for the long weekends in between blocks. Students who opt to combine CIEE courses with one course at a local French university should expect a greater focus on independent student work outside of the classroom. They will also need to work closely with CIEE staff to prepare for the French university course examination system.

Class Format

Courses taught at the CIEE Global Institute are typically for CIEE students only. Classes are scheduled Monday-Friday and meet either two, three, or four times per week, and attendance is strictly enforced both for classes and required co-curricular excursions. Students should expect an average of two hours of preparation required for each hour in class. Instruction is supported and augmented online by our learning management system, Canvas.

Grading

The U.S. grading scale of A-F is used. Students are graded on the basis of attendance, class participation, homework, project work, presentations, and mid-term and final examinations. Learning outcomes assessment is continuous through personal reflections, evaluation feedback, self-assessment, and requirements as set out in course syllabi.

Course Information

Course Notes

  • Courses are listed below by block and track; course list subject to change. Courses are in English unless otherwise noted. “GI” denotes courses that are offered at multiple CIEE locations.
  • Use the Course Comparison Tools to compare classes offered across all Open Campus Block programs for each block:
  • Mobile students studying for three blocks who wish to complete a lab course (offered in London, Monteverde, and Yucatán) will be required to opt out of one course to remain within the program credit range.

Academic Projects

  • Each Academic Project (Internship, Service-Learning, Directed Independent Research) placement will be designed based on the student’s project learning goals, qualifications, resume, and availability of placements. The process is highly individualized and goal oriented. Students enrolled in an Academic Project will receive additional academic support that informs and enhances the placement experience.
  • Students applying for an Academic Project are required to submit additional materials during the course selection process.
  • To qualify for participation, students must be in the location for at least one block in advance of the Academic Project to prepare for and secure placement. As a result, students participate in an Academic Project in either Block II or III.

Language Classes

  • During course selection, students interested in a French language course will be instructed to take an online French language assessment to determine their proficiency level. Enrollment will be finalized on site and is based on assessment outcomes.
  • Students not enrolled in three-credit language classes may add the non-credit “Survival French” course to their course load during the on-site orientation.
