Maine’s University of New England entered into a partnership with American Graduate School, which is located in Paris, France to develop an exchange student program for the university’s undergraduate students. Scheduled to start from January 2019, the program will allow UNE undergraduate students to spend one semester at the American Graduate School in Paris and get to know more about European and French culture. They will be staying with Parisian families, and their coursework will be a combination of international relations, French language classes, and their own syllabus from back home. Anouar Majid, vice president for Global Affairs, University of New England, was the one who initiated the program talks between the two educational institutions. He is also the one who founded the Center for Global Humanities on the university’s Portland campus and Tangier Global Forum on the university’s Tangier campus in Morocco. The Paris exchange student program is aimed at giving students a valuable experience that they won’t get at any other point in their lives. Their studies won’t be limited to the classroom but Paris as a whole. Called the UNE in Paris, the program will become the main destination for UNE students in Paris. It will co-exist with several other exchange programs conducted by the University of New England in Tangier, Morocco; Akureyri, Iceland; and Seville, Spain. The university also had a handful of shorter travel courses in destinations including Italy, Ireland, Kenya, the Galapagos Islands, and Thailand. American Graduate School The Parisian educational institute is a unique school that is designed for students from all around the world who are interested in international relations and diplomacy. The school offers two types of courses - the first one being graduate degree programs in International Relations and Diplomacy and undergraduate study abroad programs for the school’s partner universities.
