The biggest thing I learned was how to appreciate a culture other than my own. I realized how much I appreciate where I come from. I want to travel to so many more places now that I have seen Paris.

I gained a very broad new perspective on how to live your life. I experienced everything from the french perspective that work is not everything in life to their environmental conservation efforts.

About

The purpose of this course is to help students understand and develop awareness of some the current cultural differences and bridges between France and America. As students learn about French and American cultural relations, they will further develop a sense of their own cultural identity as well as an awareness of cultural difference; they will be expected to hone their ability to think critically, write with clarity and precision, and appreciate complexity and nuance. We will place special emphasis on the ways in which history, sociology, culture and politics have shaped mutual cultural (mis)perceptions in both the United States and in France.
