AGS To Host Series of Summer Study Abroad Programs from Partner Universities

Thursday, 02 May 2019

summer_study%20abroad_thumbnail.jpgThe American Graduate School in Paris is welcoming two study abroad programs in coming weeks from US-based partner institutions, Governors State University near Chicago and Arcadia University outside Philadelphia.

Governors State's renowned criminal Criminal Justice and Public Administration programs will bring a group of graduate and advanced undergraduate students to AGS from 6 to 12 May to study responses to transnational crime. In addition to GSU faculty, the program will feature AGS Professor Ruchi Anand and Kevin Mills, a US foreign service officer with the Paris embassy who specializes in human rights, religious freedom and human trafficking. The students will visit the French National Assembly, a Paris courthouse, and UNESCO headquarters, as well as take a day trip to Brussels to tour the European Parliament.

Arcadia University's prestigious International Peace and Conflict Resolution program will bring its masters students to AGS in June for a week-long intensive program in diplomacy, one of the core study areas at AGS. The Arcadia program will be led by Ambassador Michael Einik, a long-time US State Department expert on Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union who is now on the AGS faculty.

The Arcadia program is the latest in the long-time partnership between Arcadia and the American Graduate School in Paris. The AGS Masters in International Relations and Diplomacy is a US-accredited degree thanks to its relationship with Arcadia.

AGS works with several other partner institutions to provide tailored study abroad programs complementing those institutions’ coursework in areas related to international relations and diplomacy. Through these programs, AGS shares its expertise and allows partner institutions to take advantage of its location and connections in Paris, through its faculty drawn from the diplomatic community and through visits to international organizations, government agencies and other Paris-based organizations.

In addition to the two upcoming programs, AGS will partner with Purdue University in Indiana on an international communications study abroad program in October.

AGS also will host a delegation of government officials from Vietnam for a professional development program on national security policies, in collaboration with the Institute for Executive Education, which specializes in Asian educational exchanges. As part of its long-term commitment to foster international educational, cultural and political dialogue, AGS has welcomed delegations of judges and inspectors from Hanoi to study new French anti-corruption laws, and publishers interested in studying new technology and issues raised by the digital revolution in print media through the partnership with the Institute.
