The HCJYF offers nine months in Paris, as well as orientation in Biarritz, in the South West of France, and Paris.
Reid Hall, the program's headquarters, is situated just a few blocks away from Paris' culturally vibrant Latin Quarter. The Hamilton program in Paris attracts students considering careers in government and non-profit agencies; international business; foreign service; education; medicine; and international law. Many students on the program major in Political Science, Studio Art and Art History, History, and, of course, French.
They accept a small group, for close attention (30-35 students on average). Student accommodation is in home-stays (half-board) in Parisian residences, within Paris city limits, for a full immersion experience, sustained language practice, and better integration. HCYJF offers a large selection of courses at Parisian institutions as well as a selection of in-house courses.
Students must pledge to speak French only with members of the group. Day and overnight field trips included in the general fee.
