American University of Paris

The American University of Paris (AUP) was founded in 1962 by Lloyd DeLamater, a former U.S. State Department official who steadfastly believed in the transformative power of international travel. AUP's first group of 100 students took classes in rented basement rooms of the American Church in Paris. Today, AUP is a world-renowned liberal arts institution that teaches, inspires, and challenges over 1,200 students each year. These students represent more than 140 countries and study 27 majors at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Through these American academic programs in the heart of Paris, AUP fosters awareness, relationships, and connectivity across national borders.
