Off-Campus Study > Paris International Internship Program
The Paris International Internship Program aims to provide the student with in-depth exposure to French society and culture through a combination of work experience and classroom instruction. Held in the fall semester each year, the Paris program provides intensive language study with an on-site French Culture seminar and an internship in a variety of fields. Students experience full immersion as they work, study, and live with French families. Students must be at the junior or senior level, have demonstrated French language proficiency, and have a solid academic background in their major field(s). Students are normally expected to have a B-average (GPA). Internships are graded on a Credit/D/Fail basis; the other two courses use the A/B/C/D/F system. All students will be housed in private homes arranged by the director in Paris, Dr. Maria Al-Salem '67. Students pay regular Lake Forest College tuition, plus room and board in Paris, and activity/excursion fees.

Hear what our students have to say:
"My language skills improved remarkably, and I saw many places of incomparable beauty. I would strongly recommend our Paris program to anyone."
"Being in Paris was one of the greatest experiences of my life. Our program is exceptional because it afforded me many opportunites for personal growth, and being away from home helped me become more independent and self-reliant."
