Life and Culture: The culture of France and of the French people has been shaped by geography, by profound historical events, and by foreign and internal forces and groups. France, and in particular Paris, has played an important role as a center of high culture and of decorative arts since the 17th century, first in Europe, and from the 19th century on, world wide. From the late 19th century, France has also played an important role in cinemafashion and cuisine. The importance of French culture has waxed and waned over the centuries, depending on its economic, political and military importance. French culture today is marked both by great regional and socioeconomic differences and by strong unifying tendencies.

Cost: $4495 plus airfare, tuition and some meals.

The program fee includes: Housing; excursions, cultural events, insurance, ground transportation, and most meals. Not included: GC tuition, International airfare, student fees, passport, books, additional meals, independent travel, and other personal expenses.
