UF in Paris - Business
Fall [late Aug - mid Dec]
Your ProgramSpend a semester living in Paris while completing courses toward your business major or minor! The Warrington College of Business Administration offers a semester-long study abroad program in Paris, France that allows students to earn UF credit by taking two online UF business courses, as well as two courses focusing on French language and culture. All University of Florida students are invited to participate in this program, as the credit earned will apply to the UF business degree, business minor, and general education requirements. Consideration will also be given to non-UF business students who are enrolled in an SUS (State University System) institution.
Paris is commonly referred to as the City of Lights, and visitors to this remarkable city will realize the appropriateness of this reference soon after their arrival. It is impossible to ignore the enchantment of the Eiffel Tower, the beauty of the architecture, and the immeasurable value of the museums. Yet, students are sure to remember the charm of Parisian cobblestone streets, the delightful patisseries, and the life of bistros and cafés.
Your SchoolThe program will be held on the campus of St John's University, one of America's leading Catholic universities. Students will stay in the newly renovated, comfortable environment of the Maison-Mère, located in the popular St-Germain district of Paris. The campus is situated within a six-story structure containing approximately 20,000 square feet of space offering a mixture of residences, classrooms, offices and support space. Best of all, you have immediate access to the incomparable artistic, cultural and educational resources available only in Paris.
Largely populated by young artists, the sixth Arrondissement -- the St-Germain-Luxembourg Area is considered one of Paris's liveliest quarters. The adventure of this district lies in discovering the narrow streets and hidden squares that bring the city's historic and literary associations to life. Dominated for centuries by a vast Benedictine abbey, St-Germain-des-Prés came into vogue in the early 20th century as a center of intellectual and artistic life, home to jazz clubs and literary cafés. Students will gain an understanding of French culture by being immersed in this artistic neighborhood. Though the recent arrival of couture and designer boutiques is changing the neighborhood's character, its narrow side streets still boast art galleries, bookstores and cozy café terraces.
