Paris Study Abroad Program



Paris Study Abroad Program - Summer (May 11-28) 2017

The program offers a unique opportunity to study the reach, regulations, use and implications of digital/Internet communication technologies across the Atlantic. We will meet and interact with media entrepreneurs and regulators, including members of the highest political bodies in France (Prime Minister’s Office, National Assembly, French FCC-equvalent). Based in Paris, we will visit major political and regulatory institutions, businesses, and media enterprises.

We will learn about the differences between the US and French business, cultural, and regulatory regimes and about the complexity of doing business and deploying global communication business and technologies in European Union, which is he US’s largest overseas market, greater and richer than China or India.

The program offers 3 credit hours which will be recorded as COM 251, Information, Communication, and Society which is part of the university core, satisfying the Information literacy requirement.
