Travel to beautiful Paris, France and study modern French culture, government, and immigration, and their impacts on diverse communities within France through the lenses of science, technology, and innovation. Learn how the French have adapted these themes to globalization, the ever-changing face of their population, and how that differs from approaches in the US.

On this FLP, you will study the effects of the acceptance of technology, the influence of innovation, and views of the role of science in society. How do these various factors impact immigration, economics, biases, and other aspects of community development?

  • Go on a guided bicycle tour of Paris & see Notre Dame, the Champs-Elysees, & more!
