Take a study break at the Eiffel Tower while studying abroad in Paris, the city of light. Pass the day watching the world walk by at your favorite local cafe or gaze at the Mona Lisa in the world's most visited art museum, The Louvre. Stroll along the Champs-Elysees while enjoying everything that Paris has to offer in your spring semester abroad!

The UW Paris Spring Program is offered through a partnership with the CIEE Contemporary French Studies program, Language and Culture track. A faculty member from UW Madison serves as the Resident Director each spring. In addition, CIEE will facilitate the transition into Parisian life and help with everyday practical matters. 

Paris, France’s capital, is a major world metropolis. The Seine River traverses the city; its waterways, quays, and bridges are major thoroughfares, and ways to see the city’s most famous monuments such as the Eiffel Tower, Louvre, and Notre Dame Cathedral. The city is known for its cafés (one for every 200 inhabitants), parks (Bois de Boulougne, Jardin de Luxembourg, Bois de Vincennes), street life and markets; and as a center for culture, art, fashion, gastronomy, and intellectual life.
