Study Abroad in Paris
As the lines blur between traditional and new media, the constant flow of information impacts political and cultural trends around the world. From 24-hour news channels to citizens and world leaders sharing the same social media platforms to diffuse their reactions, we are exposed to global issues from many different perspectives. Exploring the relationships between media, politics, and citizens has never been more pertinent. This high-impact program places you in the heart of Paris to help you develop critical communication skills and real-world understanding of political and global issues. An Early Start option allows you to jump start your language learning before the semester begins.

CEA Paris – Communications, Politics & Global Issues is a new program for Pace (as of August 2023), so there are no pre-approved courses from previous Pace students. Therefore, you will need to seek approval for all CEA courses from your Pace Academic Advisor and a Pace Department Chair. This takes time so please start the course approval process early and read about the process of obtaining Pace academic credit for courses taken abroad

HEALTH & SAFETY
(as of May2022)
- While we encourage you to move forward with your study abroad planning, please read this important information about COVID-19:The global situation regarding COVID-19 ever changing. While Pace Study Abroad is still processing applications, it is unclear what the state of the pandemic will be in the next few months in countries abroad, or what U.S. or foreign government policies will be. Pace's decision-making is always guided by what we believe is in the best interest of our students’ health and safety, balanced with the students’ educational goals and opportunities.
- Program participants are permitted to proceed with their plans to study abroad with the understanding that they do so at their own risk. Any financial loss incurred because of program cancellation, travel, or health issues related to COVID-19 will not be reimbursed by Pace.
- Discuss your plans with your family to determine your personal comfort level with international travel this summer.
- Due to the changing nature of COVID-19 and foreign immigration laws, the foreign institution/program provider could decide to cancel completely or move the study abroad program to a fully virtual format with short notice - without providing reimbursement.
- Foreign entry requirements can change at the last minute. Policies that may currently permit the entry of U.S. passport holders for the purpose of study abroad could be changed without notice due to the COVID pandemic.
- You will probably be required to show proof of a negative COVID test and/or proof of COVID vaccinations at immigration on arrival at your host country abroad. The costs of all such COVID tests are your responsibility. Proof of COVID vaccination may be imposed by host country governments/airlines for entry into the host country at the last minute.
- Many airlines currently require proof of a negative COVID test. It is your responsibility to ensure that you can obtain such a test and cover the costs.
- U.S. passport holders may be required to quarantine upon entry into the host country in advance of the program start date. This quarantine may or may not be permitted to occur in housing through the foreign university/program provider.
- It's your responsibility to consult directly with the foreign institution regarding COVID -19 quarantine requirements and associated costs. Note: costs associated with quarantine are not covered by federal financial aid.
- We strongly suggest that you purchase fully refundable airline tickets and/or trip cancellation insurance ("cancel for any reason" coverage) and ensure that the policy covers cancellation due to pandemic. (Pace assumes no responsibility for losses or penalties due to program cancellation or student withdrawal.)
- Pace strongly advises that students purchase their own medical/emergency/travel insurance that will cover them during the duration of their time abroad, and students will receive some recommended insurance policies from Pace to consider.
- You will be required to follow all COVID-related laws and protocols in your host country abroad as well as those outlined by your host institution.
- Returning to the USA after your program
- Travel restrictions may change while you're abroad, prohibiting students from returning to the U.S.
