It was definitely worthwhile. - Tufts University View Entire Review
Living abroad made me realize how much I'd like to repeat the experience. I loved learning a new language and cultural customs. The history and art in Paris had me looking up everywhere I went. - Tufts University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Tufts Programs Abroad: Tufts in Paris- Various Institutions   Tufts University  Paris - Ile-de-France, France
Best year of my life. period. - Tufts University View Entire Review
Yes, I am certainly more aware of French and world cultural issues and differences now and I also feel that I have gained a lot of confidence from the experience, not to mention friends who I experienced an amazing semester with. I hope to go back to Paris, if not to live there for more time, than certainly as a visitor! - Tufts University View Entire Review
The experience is what you make of it. I believe that you can get as much as you want out of a study abroad regardless which program you go on. It is really a question of what the student puts into it. - Tufts University View Entire Review
The experience was absolutely worthwhile. I experienced a major tourist destination as a resident sees it, I greatly improved my language skills, and I got to study art history in one of the most art-filled cities in the world. - Tufts University View Entire Review
I learned a lot about french culture, education, politics, lifestyle, and myself during my sejourn in Paris. I highly recommend a semester abroad to everyone, especially in Paris! - Tufts University View Entire Review
Absolutely. I definitely came out of my America-centric bubble and got to look at my home country from the perspective across the frog pond. I wouldn't take any of my experience back - it was all well worth it. - Tufts University View Entire Review
Going to Paris offered a very Western-focused study abroad experience, and in one sense I regret that I didn't choose a French-speaking country that was more 'off the beaten path' and might broaden my perspective more than a semester in Paris. On the other side, I got to see the Eiffel Tower at least twice a day, eat some of the... - Tufts University View Entire Review

It was worthwhile. I grew as person. I became more independent and self-sufficient. Furthermore, my language skills improved dramatically! - Tufts University View Entire Review
Past Review Manger Bouger!
I learned SO much about myself - about living in a big family, about finding my way and getting lost in a big incredible city, about how to introduce myself to people and keep up relationships, about French etiquette and customs, etc. - Tufts University View Entire Review
Yes I really want to move back to Paris. - Tufts University View Entire Review
Completely. I learned a lot about the culture and myself. - Tufts University View Entire Review
I am more independent and confident in myself. I can live on my own in a big city, fly on airplanes by myself, take public transportation, and navigate it all in a foreign language. I definitely gained an international perspective. America bores me- I need to see more places and do more things! - Tufts University View Entire Review
Past Review Paris
Sciences Po was an interesting experience but I don't think I would enroll there again. - Tufts University View Entire Review
I loved my year abroad! It was the best year of my life. I hope to travel more in the future. - Tufts University View Entire Review
yes - Tufts University View Entire Review
Yes, it was extremely worthwhile. I learned a lot more about French cultural specifically and foreign culture in general. It was great to just interact with new people, speak a new language, and travel to parts of the world I had never seen. - Tufts University View Entire Review
I cannot summarize this experience in a little box on the Internet, sorry... - Tufts University View Entire Review
It was definitely worthwhile, I gained a better knowledge of french culture, french people and everything associated with a typical study abroad experience. It's just that Paris was probably not my favorite city. - Tufts University View Entire Review
I gained a lot of confidence in my French language skills, independence in foreign places (I travelled solo a lot), and some maturity in dealing with situations that I was uncomfortable with. Paris is a wonderful place and I hope I can come back soon. - Tufts University View Entire Review
Past Review
Better language skills, communication skills, new friends, greater appreciation for French culture - Tufts University View Entire Review

About

The Tufts-in-Paris program offers a combination of Tufts in-house courses taught by French professors and courses in French institutions of higher education in Paris, notably the University of Paris III (Sorbonne Nouvelle), University of Paris I (Panthéon-Sorbonne), and the Institut Catholique. All three are located on the Left Bank within easy distance of the program office situated in the historic Montparnasse area. Courses are available in French and comparative literature, political science, economics, history, cinema and theatre studies, communications, art history, philosophy, religion, psychology, European studies, and international relations. All courses are taught in French. Full-year students have the opportunity to be part-time interns for two months in the spring semester. Placements are varied and include small French companies, art galleries, and NGOs. Volunteer activities are also possible for both semester and full-year students. Full-year students take the TCF (test de connaissance du français), which is recognized worldwide as validation of their level of French; test results are valid for two years.
