AUP’s Academic Partnership with
Eugene Lang College of The New School
Students at The American University of Paris may now enroll in our new international programs bridging the AUP campus in Paris to the Eugene Lang College campus in Greenwich Village, New York City. The program’s innovative structure pushes beyond traditional study-abroad programs, connecting the undergraduate experience in Europe and the United States into an integrated learning opportunity.
This unique program is designed to capitalize on the strengths of a liberal arts experience in the heart of two of the world’s most dynamic and beautiful cities, bringing students into contact with faculty in a small classroom setting across the Atlantic and exploring the role these metropolises have played, and continue to play, in the human experience.
Students may enroll in one of the following programs: Global Cities, Global Communications, Culture and Media, and Transnational Literary Studies. For each program, AUP students will spend three years at AUP and one year at Eugene Lang College, participating in courses and projects between the two campuses and building international learning communities through visiting students and faculty as well as high-definition videoconferencing technology and social media.
This program has been generously supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation as part of their effort to sponsor pioneering educational experiences that will lay the foundation for higher education in the twenty-first century. AUP and its partners at Eugene Lang are proud to receive $650,000 towards this ambitious program for the two campuses which will also be used to support faculty research and the sharing of pedagogical and recruitment resources across the two campuses.
