Course content

This exciting Masters programme offers students the opportunity to explore key areas of the cultural and intellectual life of Paris. Taught and assessed exclusively in English, the degree is awarded by the University of London and all teaching takes place at ULIP, within an historic building in the 7th arrondissement in central Paris. Through being in Paris itself, students benefit from immersion within the French context of their studies, as well access to the unequalled resources offered by the city. This is a unique prospect for direct intellectual engagement with the realities of Paris, both past and present.
