Paris

Photography

The Paris Predeparture Guide prepared by IES provides important information about the program, and you should read it with care. The following supplemental information pertains to Indiana University students only.

IES AND IU

The Institute for the International Education of Students (IES) is a nonprofit organization that administers nearly 100 study abroad programs in 36 cities in Asia, Australia, Europe and South America. More than 200 U.S. colleges and universities, including Indiana University, have formal agreements with IES, and their representatives work with the Institute to set academic policy and approve curricula. Through its office in Chicago, IES administers the Paris program during the academic year and the summer. The IU Office of Overseas Study has made special arrangements with IES for sponsorship of the Photography program in Paris.

Professor Jeff Wolin will teach the courses. Because he is from IU and familiar with IU policies and procedures, he may be able to provide special liaison and counsel to IU students. Note, however, that his role is primarily as an instructor. If you have questions regarding the academic program, housing, or getting around Paris and Arles, or in case of emergency, contact the IES staff in Paris and Arles.

FINANCIAL ARRANGEMENTS

You pay all program fees directly to Indiana University. Any questions regarding finances for the program, including financial aid, should be addressed to the Office of Overseas Study at Indiana University. 

COURSE

If you have not yet completed FINA-S 291 (the prerequisite class of this program), you should consult with Professor Wolin regarding the credit that will be awarded to you.
