Academic Programs Abroad (APA) provides students with the opportunity to live and study in France by directly enrolling in local university courses. APA program courses supplement these studies, and provide a bridge between the French and American educational systems and cultures. Students have the option of staying with a local family, or independently. Spring semester and full year students have the opportunity to participate in a summer internship in Paris (not eligible for Yale credit).
