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 Open Campus Block locations in Berlin, Buenos Aires, Cape Town, Copenhagen, Dublin, Kyoto, London, Monteverde, Paris, Rome, Santiago, Shanghai, Sydney, and Yucatán.

Students choose from a variety of disciplines within seven different tracks: Art and Architecture; 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. 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 courses in Art History or Francophone Literatures.

Faculty from local institutions and CIEE faculty teach CIEE courses. Eligible students studying in Paris for three blocks may be able to enroll in a course at one of our Parisian university partners

GPA

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 and take a language assessment test.

Language Prerequisites

There are no specific language requirements for this program.

Individual courses may have additional prerequisites; for CIEE courses, these are listed in the syllabi below. Students are responsible for having their own course approval conversations with their advisors.

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: 6-7 U.S semester/9-10.5quarter credits
  • Two blocks: 12-14 U.S. semester/18-21 quarter credits
  • Three blocks: 15-18 U.S. semester/22.5-27 quarter credits

Course Credit

Individual courses may have additional prerequisites; for CIEE courses, these are listed in the syllabi below. Students are responsible for having their own course approval conversations with their advisors.

Academic Culture

Each six-week course covers the content of a full semester, so the pace is fast and the workload 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 instead 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 CIEE Paris 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 based on 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.

Individual courses may have additional prerequisites; for CIEE courses, these are listed in the syllabi below. Students are responsible for having their own course approval conversations with their advisors.

Language of Instruction

English and/or French

Course Information

Fall 2021 Term
Students may choose to study at only one CIEE site per semester or opt for the reduced mobility options across the active sites.  Health and safety conditions permitting, instruction will be live in the classroom for onsite for students in residence with some additional classes provided via hybrid and online learning. Contingency plans are in place to allow for program completion in the event of any academic disruption.

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:
  • 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.
  • Many CIEE courses are available in multiple CIEE locations. To help ensure you are able to enrol in the courses you need, some courses may be facilitated as a HYBRID course by an instructor from a location that is separate from your own. In a HYBRID course, you will learn either face-to-face or online, depending on your location. However, regardless of your location, you will apply what you learn from the instructor and course materials in your location. The facilitation location for these courses will be confirmed and communicated to you by June 15th.
Academic Projects
  • Academic Projects will be offered onsite (either in-person or remotely) or remotely at another Open Campus location, dependent on availability and in compliance with local health and safety regulations.
  • Academic Project placement will be designed based on the student’s project learning goals, qualifications, resume, and availability of placements in location or within the GI Network either in-person or remotely. 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.  
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 may add the non-credit “Survival French” course to their course load during the on-site orientation.
