Summer 2020 - USG Goes Global - Paris, France

Paris, one of the oldest and most fascinating cities in the world, has fired the imagination of artists, writers, and students for centuries. La “Ville Lumière,” Paris is home to countless museums, cafés, and medieval streets that wind around contemporary architecture. A city à decouvrir, Paris is an invitation to experience all the world’s cultures while maintaining a proud and distinctly French feeling. Picture yourself spending a summer studying in the “City of Light,” the “museum without walls,” immersed in history and surrounded by some of the world’s finest art, architecture, and music. As a participant in the Paris Study Abroad Program, you won’t have to imagine these things—you can live them.

The “Capital of the World” is your classroom as you study history where it was made, attend theater and music performances by world-renowned companies and ensembles, write in parks and cafés where Fitzgerald and Hemingway wrote, and learn French immersed in the language. Paris offers all of this and more as part of the study abroad program.

Students can earn 3 credit hours of Psychology courses:

PSYC 1101: Introduction to Psychology (3 credits)

PSYC 3355: Special Topics in Diversity (3 credits)

Summer 2020 - USG Goes Global - Porto, Portugal 

Here you will be introduced to many aspects of the environmental landscape of Porto.
