Program Description:

Study Abroad in Paris

While you don’t need us to tell you that Paris is the fashion capital of the world, we can show you how it earned and kept this title. The Fashion Studies in Paris program is designed to give you critical insight into the fashion industry in Paris and in Europe. Tour the luxury fashion district in Paris & some of its boutiques to learn how the experts leverage industry trends. Visit fashion & decorative arts museums with expert faculty to deepen your knowledge of fashion & art history. Analyze how digital marketing has transformed the fashion industry and how you communicate identity through what you wear. In this program you can choose to approach fashion from the perspective of business, art history, or communication studies, or a combination of these three angles. Additional elective courses focus on aspects of French culture and may fulfill a humanities or social science requirement. While French language skills are not required for this program you may enroll in a French-language course in order to more readily navigate the world’s fashion capital.
