  • Dear Global Education Office:

    Since the Duke in Paris program ended three weeks ago, I find myself missing Paris more than I have missed any place in my life. My decision to participate in Duke in Paris was one of the best decisions I have ever made, and my appreciation and…

  • Dear Global Education Office:

    Duke in Paris is the place to be for the summer! Although I left Paris just 2 or 3 weeks ago, I'm already missing this amazing city where you cannot be bored, no matter how hard you try. I was really thrilled with the opportunity to live…

  • Dear Global Education Office:

    South of France was a much-needed break from the cigarette smoke and noisy metros of Paris. We relaxed in the Italian-influenced restaurants of Aix-en-Provence while munching on olives in this slow-paced village. Even the centre-ville was much more laid-back than the bustling, polluted streets of Paris. We ventured…

  • Dear Global Education Office:

    The Duke in Paris summer program was an incredible way to learn French and see Paris in a different way. Professor Reisinger’s theatre class was especially interesting- we read some very different plays and then got to see performances in famous Parisian theatres. I learned so much…

    This picture was taken during a dinner at my apartment in Paris and captures what I love most about the summer program: the unparalleled opportunity to get to know students both in and outside of class.

    This summer’s highlights included a breath-taking weekend in the South of…

  • Dear Global Education Office:

    The six weeks I spent in France this summer was definitely one of the highlights of my Duke experience. My favorite part about Paris was that there was no thing as an ordinary stroll through the city: every street, every neighborhood, every building, large and small, flourished…

  • Dear Global Education Office:

    I had been in Paris for three days before starting the Duke Summer in Paris program. It was one of the best experiences I have had in my life. Through our class work we went out and had conversations with native French speakers, which not only improves…

  • Dear Global Education Office:

    Paris without its cafés would not be Paris! I snapped this picture after having class at a café one day. We had spent the morning sitting at the street-side tables, discussing our readings about the origins and history of the café, and sipping a chocolat chaud or…

  • Dear Global Education Office:

    The six weeks I spent in Paris were definitely the best weeks of my summer! The two classes we took allowed us to reflect further on our experiences, and to really situate what we were seeing in a historical and cultural context. I loved visiting museums and…

  • Dear Global Education Office:

    Spending a semester in Paris offered me some of the rarest and most incredible experiences of my life. Living with a charming French woman across the river from the Eiffel Tower, my rich experience of French culture began with conversations, excursions, and authentic French meals with her.…

  • Dear Global Education Office:

    What I found to be the best part of studying in Paris for the semester was how familiar I became with the city, how "homey" it became. From the Metro stations that I went through every day, to the boulangerie where I always tried something new, to…

  • Dear Global Education Office:

    Not only did my French language skills improve dramatically, but I learned a great amount about the French culture – including some of the history of French cuisine (I even took a cooking class) and its significance to the French people. I visited several major museums and…

  • Dear Global Education Office:

    I applied to the Duke in France program on a whim. I was hesitant to study in Paris for four months because I didn't know what to expect, and I worried that my French wasn't good enough. I had studied French since I was six years old,…
