The program offers frequent cultural activities, many of which are incorporated into and enrich the academic program. Students go on a day excursion (to the châteaux of Fontainebleau and Vaux-le-Vicomte or the villages of Giverny and Auvers-sur-Oise associated with the artistic life of the nineteenth century), and spend the weekend in the Loire Valley or in Normandy and Brittany. As part of the program, students also participate in historical and architectural walking tours of Parisian neighborhoods, attend an opera or ballet at the Palais Garnier or Opéra Bastille, attend a concert of classical music or French rock or pop. Cultural activities vary, of course, from one semester to another because of the rich but always changing programming of museums, concert halls, and theaters.
Credit Transfer
For High Point University to recognize the credits you complete abroad, you must earn at least a grade equivalent to a C in the U.S. HPU will not accept credit for courses with grades of C– or below. Grades for all courses earned abroad are recorded on the international transcript. Credits are received by HPU as transfer credits, which means the credit is received but the grade is not. Your HPU grade point average will not be impacted positively or negatively by your study abroad courses.
