The Middlebury College School in Paris was founded in 1949 as a graduate program in Paris where Middlebury College French School students could continue and finish their MA degree. In the 1960s, as Middlebury College undergraduate students began to show interest in going abroad, the program was expanded to fulfill their needs. Students may study French literature, comparative literature, linguistics, history, theater, film, musicology and music, art history, geography, economics, political science and international relations, psychology, philosophy, and religion . Middlebury College's partners in Paris include Paris 1 - Panthéon Sorbonne, Paris 3 - Sorbonne Nouvelle, Paris IV - Sorbonne, Institut d'Etudes Politiques (Sciences-Po), Ecole Spéciale d'Architecture, Institut Catholique de Paris, or Ecole Normale de Musique. Special arrangements can be made to study at other Parisian institutions (Ecole Normale Supérieure and EHESS, for instance).
