Research & Internships
The Stanford Program in Paris offers two distinct internship networks to students.
- Regular, fixed positions which represent an integral part of the program. These positions are usually activity, observation or research internships and are offered by doctors, alumni or researchers affiliated with the Stanford program and only require a one-quarter stay in Paris. Download this PDF to see a complete listing of opportunities.
- Arranged positions which require that students spend at least two quarters in Paris, either Autumn and Winter OR Winter and Spring. The first quarter is spent determining your interests and preparing you for the experience, the second, to the actual internships. Download this PDF for more details.
Research/Independent Study in Paris
If you are looking to pursue a somewhat familiar subject in depth or prepare for future honors work, the Paris program offers the opportunity to conduct independent study. You are paired with a French specialist who acts as mentor and research advisor.
The work consists of weekly meetings, required readings, and oral presentations, and culminates in a fifteen page final paper based on your findings. Research proposals must be submitted one month in advance of quarter of intended research to the Program Director.
