The curriculum at NYU Paris focuses on the language, arts, history, literature, and politics of France and its relationships with the wider world. A world-class faculty provides context and support for students’ academic work. Students with a limited background in French enroll in Program I, where all courses except for language courses are taught in English. Students proficient in French participate in Program II, which features a variety of courses taught in French. All students take a French language course appropriate to their level. Coursework is enhanced by faculty-led trips in and around Paris, to world-renowned museums such as the Louvre and the Musée Picasso or to smaller galleries and exhibits, as well as to the opera, ballet, and theatre. Students receive a University of Paris student card and may take courses at the University of Paris or at the Institut d’Études Politiques (Sciences Po). All students are carefully advised upon their arrival in Paris; students who opt to take courses in the French university system receive additional individualized in-house tutorial assistance. Masters level graduate programs in French Literature, French Language & Civilization, Museum Studies, and Teaching French as a Foreign Language also contribute to the overall academic quality of the Paris academic center.

NYU Paris has moved to a new academic center in the Latin Quarter, the thriving historic and intellectual heart of Paris, in Summer 2014. Students will have the opportunity to benefit from the numerous cultural, artistic, and academic institutions of this wonderful neighborhood, as well as to get to know the city through faculty-led visits and walking tours. The program offers regular day trips to places outside of the city such as Chantilly, Giverny, and Versailles, and weekend excursions and study-trips to locations such as Avignon, the Loire Valley, Mont-Saint-Michel, and La Rochelle, that allow students to further embrace the richness, depth, and diversity of French history and civilization.
