Hollins University was among the first colleges in the nation to offer an international study program in Paris in 1955. A distinctive study abroad program, it is designed to be flexible in curriculum and builds around the interests of students. You will experience the city of Paris with courses that take you right into the daily lives of its inhabitants.
This program offers two tracks: one is designed for the student who has taken a lot of French and is interested in an immersion experience. The second, a hybrid track, is for students who want to live and study in Paris but who are not French majors or minors but have at least one year of college level French.
Students can participate in fall or spring semester or for a full year. All students must have the approval of the Rollins French department no matter which track they apply to.
Location: Hollins Abroad’s offices and classrooms are located in Reid Hall, just off Boulevard Montparnasse, near the Jardin du Luxembourg and close to the Sorbonne. It’s a lively neighborhood whose streets were once the haunts of Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, Eugène Ionesco, and Pablo Picasso, and are still the center of Parisian intellectual and artistic life.
