Skidmore in Paris
Skidmore in Paris operates two programs in Paris that run concurrently – the Liberal Arts, Language & Business program and the Paris Fall Seminar. The Liberal Arts, Language & Business program is designed for students at all levels of French language skills (beginner to advanced) to study in Paris, taking courses taught in French or English. The program is available in the fall semester, spring semester, or for the full-year. The Paris Fall Seminar (fall semester only) is led by a different Skidmore faculty director each fall semester with a specific academic focus.
Both programs are run in partnership with IES Abroad, a global, non-profit, study abroad organization with more than 130 academic programs in 35 locations. In Paris, students will have access to two IES centers, each staffed with a center Director and additional support staff.
