FIU Honors France Study Abroad

FRANCE STUDY ABROAD: ART, WAR, & HUMAN RIGHTS

Live a month in France with FIU! Study France’s political and cultural history in its streets and museums. Based in Paris, the class navigates Francois I’s Renaissance in the Loire castles, Marie Antoinette’s final trek through Paris to the guillotine, and Hemingway’s walk through the streets of the Latin Quarter.

Students engage in debates about nationalism, revolution and human rights in the country that saw the most radical, idealistic, and brutal revolution in Europe. They encounter the personalities that have shaped world history—Voltaire, Rousseau, Maximilien Robespierre, Olympe de Gouges, Napoleon Bonaparte, Dwight D. Eisenhower—as well as the figures that revolutionized art history: David, Gericault, Monet, Van Gogh, Matisse, and Picasso. The class visits the Louvre, Orsay, Invalides, Notre Dame, Eiffel Tower, and other museums and monuments of Paris. Also included in the trip are visits to the castles of the Loire, the beaches of Normandy, the French Alps, and Lyon.
