The Center in Paris is the University of Chicago's research and teaching arm in Europe, an intellectual community of faculty, graduate and undergraduate students representing our traditionally strong ties to European thought and culture. The Center is located in the 13th arrondissement, between the newly expanded campus of the University of Paris VII and the French National Library.
In addition to an advanced French language course, students enroll in regular courses at one or more of the universities with which Chicago has an agreement.
The core element of the College’s francophone European Civilization in Paris program is a three-course “Civilisation Européenne” sequence.
The IFYS program is intended to offer students certain courses that satisfy College requirements, all while building community with University of Chicago peers abroad.
