Exploring Paris with the EDUCO Study Abroad Program


In this new EDUCO video, Emory students talk about the great learning/living experience they received in Paris thanks to the EDUCO program. A consortium of Emory, Duke, Cornell, and Tulane Universities, EDUCO offers complete academic and cultural immersion in French.  In addition to courses through EDUCO and direct enrollment in courses at the University of Paris, students  have options (semester or year) for cultural excursions such as French theater outings, art museum visits, and gastronomical tastings. For  more information, see http://french.emory.edu/overseas/educo.html and http://cipa.emory.edu (Emory’s Center for International Programs Abroad).

Celebrating 12 Years of the Tibetan Studies Semester Abroad Program

Emory undergraduates, joined by students from other top American and Canadian colleges, participate in a highly competitive one-semester study-abroad program in Dharamsala that fully immerses them in the life of the Tibetan exile community’s intellectual, cultural, and political capital. Established in 2001, and co-directed by Dr. Tara Doyle of Emory’s Religion Department, the program’s unique combination of academic rigor, cultural immersion, contemplative studies, and field research has quickly made it a life-transforming experience for students and one of the finest Tibetan study-abroad programs in the nation. Highlights of the program were featured in this video, first shown at a meeting between staff and faculty from Emory and the Institute of Buddhist Dialectics in Dharamsala, India (March 2012).
