Students emerge from Hamilton in France with more than excellent language skills. They’ve advanced in their academic disciplines, become better informed citizens of the world ­– and had a lot of fun along the way. Participants in the highly regarded immersion program pledge to speak no English while abroad and receive the support they need to live up to that standard.

A Fit for Many Majors

The program attracts students from across the academic disciplines and who are considering a range of careers: government and nonprofit work, international business, media, foreign service, teaching, medicine, the visual and performing arts, and humanities and law, among others.

Personal Support

With advice from the program director, students each design an individualized program of studies to meet their specific academic requirements and to foster their intellectual growth and curiosity. If students are interested, Hamilton in France will help them find extracurricular activities such as volunteer work, sports or music. 

At Home in Paris

In the Paris-based program, students stay in carefully chosen French-speaking homes where they can live the language and culture.

Investigate, Engage

On weekends students take organized excursions to other areas of Paris or to neighboring regions. These trips help round out the student experience in meaningful, and fun, ways.
