Paris, France

The Paris Internship Program offers a semester of study and work in the hub of French and European business and culture. The program combines an internship with intensive French-language study and liberal arts courses. French faculty from local universities teach courses on contemporary France that are specifically designed for students in the Boston University program.

After completing the program's seven-week core phase, students spend the final eight weeks in full-time internships with organizations in the greater Paris area, while also attending individual writing tutorials.

You should consult with your academic advisor and the OIP as early as possible.  Freshman year is not too early to begin your inquiries about study abroad. Almost all Valpo students can participate in this program without delaying graduation if they plan carefully with their academic advisor.

The deadline to apply for the Spring 2018 Semester will be October 1st. After the deadline, the Office of International Programs study abroad staff will review applications. Once a decision has been made, applicants will be notified via their Valpo e-mail.

Click the "Apply Now" button at the top of this page to begin an application.

Cost Information

See the Budget Sheet above.

Students pay the same tuition and general fee they would pay at Valpo. Tuition, general fee and program fee will all be posted to Student Accounts as they would for a normal semester at Valpo. All financial aid (except work-study and some 'on-campus' aid) applies. Be sure to meet with your Financial Aid Advisor to determine the exact cost. Students pay housing and service fee at BU's rate.

Start your scholarships & funding search as early as possible so that you are able to plan and ensure you are able to meet any deadlines. Your study abroad advisor can also help you with brainstorming potential resources as well.
