American in Paris

Spring Break 2018




Program Description


paris avenueThis one week, three-credit embedded program connects to several on campus courses that are in the spring 2018 semester. The program will be in Paris and its design introduces undergraduate students to this city through a wide variety of lenses. With the assistance of the faculty, students will begin to understand the Paris landscape through art and culture (Humanities), music (Survey of Jazz), History (Intro to the Black Experience) or language (French for Business and Masterpieces of the Uncanny) depending on the course they are participating in at USF. The Education Abroad Office hopes that this shared international experience will only enhance the students learning and intellectual discovery, by coming together as a group from different academic backgrounds.

Students wanting to participant in American in Paris must be registered in the following courses (Spring 2018) with the corresponding Faculty members.

HUM 1020 - Intro to Humanities (Online Course), Dr. Christiane Rinck
