Delivering Academic Excellence

At AUP you will find a rich learning community that emphasizes academic rigor while prioritizing real-world experiences, language acquisition, cross-disciplinary research, creative problem-solving and an international perspective on the most pressing issues of our day.

Our faculty is connected to some of the world’s finest universities, permitting us to enjoy prestigious academic partnerships with Oxford University and the Université de Paris-Sorbonne. Our faculty is passionate about teaching and yet each faculty member remains deeply engaged in his or her own areas of scholarship. They conduct interdisciplinary research with peers around the world, publish papers in leading academic journals, and are actively sought after to be guest speakers and lecturers at prestigious institutions and universities. Best of all, they regularly involve their students in their research, providing excellent preparation for postgraduate study. Their prior and current professional affiliations are invaluable classroom resources and include relationships with Parisian museums; international organizations such as UNESCO, the OECD and the IEA in Paris; the International Criminal Tribunals at the Hague; local NGOs engaged in sustainability projects in Southern India; digital media agencies in London; and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, to name just a few.
