Location:CUPA has chosen to focus on Paris and seeks to bring as genuine an experience as possible to its students. That is why, unlike most other study abroad programs, CUPA specializes in study abroad exclusively in Paris. CUPA's offices and classrooms are located in the heart of Montparnasse, on the Left Bank, close to the Luxembourg Gardens.
The program is conducted entirely in French, and there is no instruction in English. All students follow the advanced immersion program. While providing a home base and a comforting stucture, CUPA sets itself apart from a certain type of American student community in Paris in that students are directly matriculated, do the same type of work as their French counterparts, and are strongly encouraged to participate in numerous activities in the Parisian context.
Courses or Areas of Study:Art History, Applied Arts/Performing Arts, Languages, French Literature, Comparitive Literature, Women's Studies, History of Music, Film and Theatre Studies, History, Economics, Political Science, International Relations, Sociology, Psychology, Anthropology, Ethnology, Philosophy, Religion
