We believe that a critical understanding of the past cultivates a deeper appreciation and understanding of both the present and future.The History program is offered at The American University of Paris . 


Upon graduation, you will have a profound knowledge of historical trends across cultures in at least two different geographical or thematic areas; you will be able to critically assess the value of information by identifying, interpreting, and narrating significant historical data; you will learn how to discuss a historiographical work by identifying the basic motivations and methodological approaches of the author within the discipline of History; and you will be prepared for further study and work through your mastery of reading primary texts and writing historical essays. 

Learning environment

There is perhaps no better place than Paris to delve into the enriching exploration of history. You will find that the legacy of this vibrant city remains visible in its world-renowned monuments and museums, which is why regular visits to sites around Paris, as well as other important cities across the continent, are integral to our History program offered by The American University of Paris . 

We also incorporate diverse disciplines into our curriculum, including art history, film, comparative literature, and psychology, in order to help you place history within its proper geographical, temporal, and cultural contexts. As you see the power of the past come alive in the classroom and in the city, you will recognize that ultimately, history is a way of understanding the full human experience.
