The American University of Paris

The American University of Paris (AUP) is an urban institution founded in 1962. Its campus is composed of eight buildings centrally located on the Left Bank near the Eiffel Tower and the Seine. The student body includes over one hundred nationalities; visiting study abroad students make up about 10% of the student population. Courses are taught in English by an international faculty and include the following areas:

  • Anthropology
  • Art History
  • Business & Economics
  • Communications
  • Comparative Literature
  • Computer Science
  • English Literature & Writing
  • Environmental Science
  • Film Studies
  • History
  • International Politics
  • Languages
  • Mathematics
  • Philosophy
  • Psychology
  • Urban Studies

Through Baylor University’s agreement with SAI Programs, students pay Baylor tuition, just as they would if they were staying on campus. Neither SAI nor AUP will charge students tuition. In addition, all financial aid in the way of scholarships, grants, and loans will apply to a semester or academic year of study at AUP.

SAI arranges housing in shared apartments within the city. The cost of housing is paid directly to SAI. The Paris metro provides convenient transportation to and from the AUP campus and throughout the entire city. Although, AUP provides no meal plan, all apartments are furnished with kitchens, and the city offers an endless array of fast-food and restaurant options.

An SAI program coordinator is always available to provide any type of support or information Baylor students may need. SAI students also have direct access to the support facilities provided to all AUP students.
