Where You'll Study

The prestige of the Cours de Civilisation Française de la Sorbonne (CCFS) is matched by few educational institutions. The Sorbonne is now one of the dozen or so independent units of the University of Paris. Dating back to 1919, the Cours de Civilisation Française de la Sorbonne has the status of a private institution for the teaching of French as a foreign language and courses about French culture and civilization.
