The French Quarter

In Paris from Sunday, June 1 until Friday, June 20, 2014

Spend several weeks studying the masters in one of the world’s greatest and most exciting cities while receiving up to 9 hours credit towards your degree. Classes will begin with three weeks in Paris and finish with two weeks back on the Louisiana Tech campus in order to complete our projects.

So that participants can make plans, we estimate the cost of this program to be approximately $6,500*, which includes round trip air fare from Monroe or Shreveport, Louisiana, very nice hotel accommodations in Paris, especially arranged trips while in France, as well as the instruction and company of fantastic School of Art and School of Architecture faculty. Additional expenses for this will be Louisiana Tech tuition, meals while there (our hotel/apartments each have full kitchen facilities), and pocket money as needed.
