The Global Health in Paris program will feature a sequence of three courses focused on epidemiology, microbiology, and the broader social, political and economic forces that shape global health issues. For all courses, classroom work will be complemented by laboratory exercises and field trips to Parisian locales that will enhance students’ understanding of the course topics. All participants will take a “practical” French language course (beginning, intermediate or advanced) for 10 weeks.

The Center in Paris is the University of Chicago's research and teaching arm in Europe, an intellectual community of faculty, graduate and undergraduate students representing our traditionally strong ties to European thought and culture. The Center is located in the 13th arrondissement, between the newly expanded campus of the University of Paris VII and the French National Library. Nearly half of University of Chicago's undergraduates who travel abroad study in Paris in programs that range from humanities and social sciences to natural and physical sciences. A dozen doctoral students are currently in residence at the Center, and faculty visit regularly for research, conferences and teaching.
