Student Exchange Programs

In our efforts to promote mutual understanding through international exchanges, Lehman sponsors and coordinates exchange programs with institutions from around the world. In addition to sending Lehman students abroad, Lehman is also host to international scholars from our partner schools. Among the many international educational agreements, our office supervises participants from our exchange programs with the Paris University (France), Université de Montpellier II (France), Nanyang Polytechnic (Singapore), Universidad Latinoamericana de Ciencias y Technología (Costa Rica), and Sungshin Women’s University (Korea).

New York/Paris Exchange Program

Participants on the exchange program with the Paris University have the option of studying at Lehman for a semester or a year – the greater majority opt to study for a full academic year. They take courses in any field of interest, which may or may not be the same as their fields back home and later return to their home institutions to finish their degrees. In turn, Lehman students may study in Paris for a semester or a year.

 

  • Requirements: This program is open to undergraduate and graduate students in all disciplines who are full-time CUNY students who have already spent one semester at CUNY. The program, while not limited to French majors, asks that participants have either three college-level courses in French OR the equivalent proficiency before you go.
  • The language of instruction in most courses taught on the program is French. For participants with the minimum French requirements, there is the possibility of taking courses in FRENCH AS A FOREIGN LANGUAGE. For those who have good reading and writing skills in French, courses are available in literature, art history, cinema, photography, history, economics, sociology, philosophy, political science, women's studies, the natural sciences, and computer science.
  • A three-week intensive French language course is offered by the Program in September before the French university year begins. Students have the option of taking this course in Paris.
