Strasbourg, France

More than 50,000 college students from across the world flock to picturesque Strasbourg each year, drawn by its central location, fascinating history, and great European institutions: the Court of Human Rights, the Council of Europe, and the European Parliament.


In addition to your classroom studies, you can gain hands-on experience and improve your language skills through field study (in France and other European countries) and internships. From absorbing lectures at some of Europe’s most important sites to quiet family meals at home, your time spent in Strasbourg will become some of the most memorable of your life.
