AGS courses are taught in Paris, France. However, as part of or as a complement to some of the programs, AGS students have a number of study abroad options. These options may involve either coursework or internship work. This provides students with the opportunity to enhance their international experience and gear their curriculum towards diversified and complementary disciplines.
Semester Abroad in the United States
Students enrolled in the M.A in International Relations and Diplomacy may spend one of the four semesters of the program at Arcadia University in the US, in the greater Philadelphia area (Pennsylvania), and transfer their courses back to AGS. Courses taken during the semester at Arcadia are in the discipline of International Peace and Conflict Resolution.
Semester Abroad in the Philippines
As part of the M.A. in International Relations and Diplomacy, AGS students may spend one semester at the University of San Carlos in Cebu, Philippines, and transfer their courses back to AGS. Courses at the University of San Carlos are in the disciplines of Political Science and Public Management & Development.
Summer program at UC Berkeley
Through a partnership between the American Graduate School in Paris and University of California Berkeley Extension, AGS students have the opportunity to attend a two-month summer program on Management and Leadership in San Francisco, United States, and earn a certificate from UC Berkeley Extension, the continuing and professional education school of the University of California, Berkeley.
Please note that while this program is complementary to the discipline of international relations, it may not be substituted for any of the material covered in the International Relations and Diplomacy Master’s or Ph.D. programs at AGS, and therefore the coursework is not transferrable to any degree program at AGS.
Dual Program in International Relations and Diplomacy/International Peace and Conflict Resolution
AGS and Arcadia University offer the opportunity to earn two US-accredited Master's degrees in three years. This dual program involves three semesters at the American Graduate School in Paris, France, and three semesters at Arcadia University, in the United States (greater Philadelphia area).

I aim to help my students prepare for life beyond "the groves of academe" - especially how to ask the right questions to work out what is really going on out there. Along the way, they practice writing lucidly and succinctly. It is stimulating teaching such a lively crew. I hope they also find it fun being challenged to analyse the facts without prejudice and to think originally.
