Degree requirements are the courses, internships, and other academic steps that are required to graduate with a specific degree. Please make sure to review the requirements for your specific major, minor, or graduate degree.


General Education Program

Undergraduate students at The American University of Paris are also required to complete a general education program to develop the foundations of general knowledge on which their majors are built. This general education program includes four subject areas that can be satisfied through different courses at AUP. Undergraduate transfer students can also apply some of their transfer credits towards these requirements.

In addition, our first-year students join our innovative FirstBridge learning communities when they arrive at the University. FirstBridge is a selection of paired interdisciplinary courses that take different disciplinary approaches to issues such as global warming, artificial intelligence, human rights, or visual thinking.
