Student Testimonials:

Picture of The American Graduate School in Paris"As citizens of the world community, AGSers share a deep will to improve international state of affairs. This drive for change translates into prescriptive discussion between students and teachers, not simply criticism. I most admire this quality about AGS and know that because we have the will to improve the system, we are the way for change."
Laura-Lee, USA. M.A., School of International Relations

"My AGS experience was infinitely rewarding, from the classes to the faculty, to the student community. My time in Paris gave me many opportunities to connect and interact with people in the vibrant international community around Paris, from UNESCO to Human Rights Watch, to the countless other organisations that call Paris home."

- Tim, New Zealand. M.A.in International Relations

"The American Graduate School in Paris offered me an opportunity to learn in my native tongue and yet be surrounded by another culture and language."
