Arts & Business Courses and Credits
Students studying on the Arts & Business program will enroll in 15-17 credits at the Skidmore Center in Paris and at other institutions throughout Paris. Each student is required to take a French language course and the French History and Society course. All courses are taught in English except for the French language courses.
Coursework taken in Paris is reported on a Skidmore transcript, and grades will be computed into the Skidmore GPA. Maturity-level credits taken in Paris may count toward Skidmore's maturity-level requirements upon departmental approval. Visiting students should check with their home campuses for information on credit transfer.
Skidmore Center Courses
Each semester, the Skidmore Center will provide 2-3 courses just for students on the program. Skidmore Center courses are only for students on the program and are taught by French or international faculty. Courses offered at the Skidmore Center are taught in English, except for French language courses.
Partner Institutions (Courses outside of the Skidmore Center)
Skidmore partners other academic institutions in Paris to offer additional courses taught in English for students. Course options outside of the Skidmore Center are limited to studio art (painting, drawing, and photography), art history, business, and economics. Students with at least one semester of French may be eligible to take dance courses.
