SAI invites you to experience a world-class art & design education in the heart of Paris!
Paris College of Art (PCA) is a premier art and design school firmly rooted in the rich artistic landscape of Paris. For over 30 years it has provided students the opportunity to explore and participate in the Parisian art scene while developing their portfolio under the guidance of respected industry professionals and academics.
The SAI semester program at PCA is geared toward students interested in art and design, and is open to students both with and without previous experience. Visiting students select from a variety of art and design concentrations, usually aligned with their major, and select any elective courses from the array of art, design, management, and humanities offerings for a total of 12 - 19 US credits. Summer sessions are also available.
In addition to supporting students throughout their stay in Paris, SAI’s on site staff also coordinates a range of activities and excursions throughout the term, including a weekend trip to the South of France (semester only), a visit to “l’Institut du Monde Arabe Museum”, a walking tour of Paris, a day Trip to Deauville, and much more.
SAI students in Paris experience the overlapping cultural currents which flow through this ancient city; from its origins as a small settlement on the banks of the Seine River, to its globally-recognized status as the capital of modern French culture. From astonishing architecture, to world-class fine arts, to a thriving business scene, the treasures of Paris many and varied.
