Founded in 1962, The American University of Paris (AUP) is one of the oldest American institutions of higher learning in Europe, offering a fully US-accredited liberal arts curriculum. Courses are exciting, relevant, and incorporate the city of Paris into the learning experience: students learn in its museums and streets, study the multi-ethnic world of contemporary French life, and immerse themselves in European culture.

As an international university, courses are taught in English and some are also offered in French. AUP’s curriculum is discipline based, comparative, and cross-cultural. Both student learning and faculty research are driven by a desire for excellence, shaped by AUP’s location and its demographic diversity, and directed towards critical twenty-first-century issues. AUP offers an innovative academic model, integrating classroom learning and hands-on experience that prepares students to master and to make, to reflect and to apply, to analyze and to act.

AUP is an urban institution, and its campus is composed of 8 buildings centrally located in the seventh arrondissement of Paris on the Left Bank, near the Eiffel Tower and the river Seine. The student body is composed of over 100 nationalities and visiting students make up 10%, while degree seeking students comprise 90%. The American University of Paris is accredited in the United States by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.

  • AUP faculty members represent approximately 20 nationalities
  • 15 students per full-time faculty professor
