Take a summer course at The American University of Paris


We want you to take in everything that Paris and AUP have to offer. In our summer programs, you’ll engage in lively discussions, in-depth language study, and intensive workshops with professors and students from around the world.

Earn credits towards your degree and explore the ins and outs of Paris through this unique, thought-provoking, international experience. No matter if you study the history and craft of photography in “Paris Through Photography”, examine contemporary marketing and management concepts in “Marketing in a Global Environment”, explore the international roots of cinema’s gangster genre in “International Gangsters: From Scarface to Gomorrah”, visit a thermonuclear experimental reactor in the South of France, or take a cooking class in Paris, you’ll soon discover that a summer at AUP is not quite like a summer anywhere else. 

Many of the high-school seniors who come to AUP during the summer choose to audit a class which only costs half of the original price. In addition, housing is available through the university exclusively for high-school students. 

So take a few weeks in June or July to develop deep ties with the city of Paris, while earning credits towards your degree and helping you prepare for an exciting, international future.
