Program Description:

CUPA Paris (Semester/Year)

A unique approach to study abroad in Paris for advanced students.  
Paris - La Defense

About CUPA

With over 50 years of experience as an independent study-abroad program in Paris, the Center for University Programs Abroad (CUPA) has a long tradition in international education.

While we pride ourselves on this solid background, the true strength of our program is our constant desire to innovate and adapt our offerings to the evolving needs of our students. Choosing CUPA means choosing a program that recognizes that each participant has a unique point of view. Some of our students thrive from being highly independent, while others prefer a structured approach to new experiences. We understand these differences and provide our students with the level of freedom that best suits them. What makes this highly individualized approach possible is that despite the diversity of our students’ experiences, they, along with CUPA, are committed to academic excellence and the lifelong pursuit of learning.

While French immersion is at the heart of CUPA’s mission, we have expanded our offering to include a variety of programs, ranging from a 6-week in-house summer term to a track in art and design. We also provide our most advanced and motivated students with the tools to pursue individual research, internships and special curricula. We apply to each new endeavor the same rigor and expertise that made our immersion program one of the strongest in the field.
