Program Overview

Program Description:
This interdisciplinary programme, taught in English, takes Paris as its focus and inspiration. Students approach the city through historical and contemporary perspectives on metropolitan culture and graduate with a University of London degree. Combining the expert research and teaching of the University of London Institute in Paris (ULIP) and Queen Mary University of London, this exciting Masters programme offers unrivalled opportunities for study in Paris and for the acquisition or improvement of French. Offering modules that explore the cultural, artistic, literary, political and historical dimensions of the city, the MA in Paris Studies enables students to develop practical and theoretical skills as a step towards careers in journalism, museum and creative industries, in publishing, and in academia.

The core courses Encountering Paris and Interpreting Paris offer a wide-ranging analysis of Parisian history and culture, drawing on research in the humanities and the social sciences. Literature, art, film, television and song are all examined, as are population trends, social and cultural geography and political ideas and institutions.

Setting Description:
Paris is an ideal place to immerse yourself in French history and culture. As one of the most exciting and stimulating cities in the world, it provides a unique context for direct intellectual engagement with the realities of Paris, both past and present. Paris has been named 'Best Student City' for 2014, 2015 and 2016 by QS, beating London to the top spot. The cost of living in Paris was cited as one of the reasons it won over London, with students finding life more affordable. ULIP is centrally located on the Left Bank’s Esplanade des Invalides in the city’s 7th arrondissement, home to the French National Assembly and numerous government ministries, the Eiffel Tower, Hôtel des Invalides (Napoléon's resting place), and a concentration of such world-famous museums as the Musée d'Orsay and the Musée Rodin.
