The Paris Internship Program offers a semester of study and work in the hub of French and European business and culture. The program combines an internship with intensive French-language study and liberal arts courses. French faculty from local universities teach courses on contemporary France that are specifically designed for students in the Boston University program.
After completing the program's seven-week core phase, students spend the final eight weeks in full-time internships with organizations in the greater Paris area, while also attending individual writing tutorials.

Petitionable programs are available to students in the event that any of our 200+ affiliated partner programs do not seem sufficient for your academic needs. Fewer than 10% of petitions are granted. The decision is based on a number of factors that include, but are not limited to: the quality of the petition, the rationale of why an affiliated program can not fit your needs, and why the petitionable program is an exceptional fit for your academic studies. Due to the low probability of receiving a petition, we recommend applying for an affiliated program backup in the event that your petition is denied.
