Where You'll Study

Dating back to 1919, the Cours de Civilisation Française de la Sorbonne (CCFS) has the status of a private institution for the teaching of French as a foreign language. The prestige of the Sorbonne is matched by few educational institutions. A centralized institution from its foundation until 1968, the Sorbonne is now one of the dozen or so independent units of the University of Paris. Academic credit for the elective courses taught in English is awarded by Fairfield University. In 2020 Fairfield and AIFS partnered to develop a school of record relationship that will allow academic credit to be available for both Fairfield and non-Fairfield students. Course syllabi and faculty credentials are reviewed and approved by Fairfield University.
