The Center for University Programs Abroad (CUPA), by virtue of its location in Paris, France and its partnerships with some of the world’s best universities, is part of a long academic tradition that helped lay the foundation for modern thought. The Program is committed to providing exceptional students with the highest quality international experience, both academically and personally. CUPA’s approach to intercultural learning is holistic and based upon the belief that the pursuit of knowledge is not limited to the classroom. To this end, the Program creates a framework of support that allows students to take full advantage of the opportunities available in Paris (masters-level coursework, internships, courses in a wide variety of disciplines, cultural experiences, host families, extra-curricular activities, etc.). CUPA seeks to help students thrive in an increasingly global world in which intercultural adaptability is an essential skill.
