Your classroom is Paris itself. The content of our courses is designed to take advantage of your location and growing familiarity with the City.
Study trips to museums, art exhibitions, archives, cinemas and architectural riches are an integral part of your studies. Led by internationally-respected academics, these trips give you the chance to illuminate theory with experience. As a 'resident' of Paris you can return to these sites throughout your studies, developing your understanding and giving you the chance to reflect.
The School is based in the Columbia Global Center (known as Reid Hall) in the district of Montparnasse. Montparnasse has always attracted writers and artists; it was home to Hemingway, and Picasso and Modigliani had studios there. It is next to the Latin quarter, a district teeming with student life focused around the historic Sorbonne.
Reid Hall is where the majority of your seminars take place. Built in the 18th century and used as a teaching centre since the early 20th century, it is a global research and study centre shared by partner institutions. This creates a dynamic atmosphere, with a wide range of academic and cultural lectures and conferences.
