The majors and minors within our department draw heavily on the extraordinary number of museums and monuments that you’ll have easy access to in Paris and Europe, thus allowing you a personal and immediate understanding of great works of art that span thousands of years and incorporate countries and cultures across the globe. While expanding your knowledge of the evolution of Art History and the practical techniques of the Fine Arts, you will also benefit from our Fine Arts Gallery, which has hosted over 110 exhibitions and conferences with professional artists from 25 countries, houses a permanent collection of over 100 pieces, and displays the work of past and current AUP students.
