The Department of French and Italian offers professional internships primarily in Paris for students with advanced French skills (typically, having had French 321). As Paris is one of the world’s leading business and cultural centers, influencing politics, education, entertainment, media, fashion, science and the arts, an internship in City of Lights will enhance any resume. We do our best to place students according to individual goals and chosen fields: advertising, art, business, communications, computer science/IT, design, drama/theater, fashion, finance/banking, graphic design, healthcare, hotel/hospitality/tourism, journalism, marketing, and psychology.

*Also consider France internships!
