    Start your first year of college immersed in the cultural and historic heart of Europe: Rome and Paris. Choose from a variety of intro courses and combine with daily cultural experiences for a unique 12-week experience abroad!

    Begin your journey in Rome exploring iconic sites such as the Colosseum or the Vatican and dive into the Italian culture and culinary traditions. Then continue your European adventure in Paris and enjoy its rich local cultural scene. Meet up with friends at a café after class or for a casual visit to one of the city’s many free museums and parks. Dive into the world of fashion, arts, and gastronomy!

    Spending your first semester of college traveling across Europe will provide you with the global perspective and intercultural skills you simply can’t get in a U.S classroom. Gain the confidence and maturity that will make a difference on campus and set yourself up for success!
