This multicultural environment means students live and study in constant interaction with different cultures and viewpoints.

3 - Gain an international academic experience

All courses at Sciences Po are taught from an international perspective, and Sciences Po’s network of 470 partner universities ensures students are spoilt for choice when it comes to studying abroad. All our students benefit from an international experience: undergraduate students complete their third year abroad, graduate students can take advantage of a semester outside Sciences Po, and PhD students can participate in doctoral exchange programmes.

Sciences Po offers 42 international dual degrees at the undergraduate and graduate levels and several programmes are taught entirely in English.

6- Develop a broad understanding of the social sciences and critical thinking skills

Education at Sciences Po fosters dialogue between the major disciplines of the social sciences – economics, history, political science, law and sociology. It gives students the tools they need to understand the contemporary world.

Students also develop critical thinking and public speaking skills through pedagogical methods that favour group projects, oral presentations and the confrontation of ideas. By providing a multidisciplinary approach and a range of electives, such as artistic workshops, Sciences Po encourages students to adopt different perspectives.

7- Take part in group projects and realise your potential by engaging in campus life

Sciences Po’s educational approach emphasises personal responsibility, teamwork, public expression, citizenship and humanism. Students cultivate these qualities through group projects and the 200 associations that make life on campus so exciting.

8- Live in an exceptional environment

Sciences Po’s seven multicultural campuses are located in cities with a rich historical and architectural heritage – Dijon, Le Havre, Menton, Nancy, Paris, Poitiers and Reims. The campuses are home to a tight-knit multicultural student community and feature a vibrant intellectual and extra-curricular student life.

Master Environmental Science and Policy (Dual Degree with Université Pierre-et-Marie-Curie-Paris-VI) General objectives To meet the environmental challenges of the next decades, the Dual Degree in Environmental Science and Policy relies on an interdisciplinary approach, inspired by the idea that practitioners trained in the economics of the environment and climatology, environmental modelling and environmental law will be better equipped to understand the complexity of the political, economic, scientific and democratic challenges of the environment, combine theoretical and practical knowledge and contribute to coordination between the different players in the field of the environment. Main orientations and specific features Throughout the study program, the Faculty, drawn from the most prestigious institutions (Université Pierre-et- Marie-Curie-Paris-VI, E‰cole normale supérieure, Ecole polytechnique and CEA), introduce students to cutting-edge techniques in the study of biodiversity, climate change and the “earth system” (ecology, climatology, biogeochemistry, modelling). Students acquire the theoretical knowledge they require to evaluate the state of the planet, identify and quantify the main parameters, prioritize the processes and assess the uncertainty of current knowledge. Whatever the career they choose, graduates will be capable of communicating with scientists and experts, using models and understanding their limitations. In parallel, an interdisciplinary social sciences team (political scientists, economists, legal experts and sociologists) will introduce students to sustainable development institutions and stakeholders and the economic, legal and financial tools of environmental regulation. Lastly, courses on the history and sociology of science, techniques and the environment and also of environmental philosophy give students the general knowledge they need to consider the use and development of contemporary technology. Students within the program spend their first year at PSIA, with two compulsory modules at Paris 6 in the 1st semester, and then move onto their second year of the degree at Paris 6 with a scientific specialisation semester followed by an embedded internship semester. Career opportunities Graduates of the Environmental Science and Policy Master will find openings in, amongst others,: public agencies, regional and local government or international organizations, in positions involving formulation, management and assessment of public policies in the field of the environment and sustainable development; companies involved in economic sectors that need to integrate the environmental dimension (industry, transportation, housing, energy, the food industry, etc.), in management, definition of strategy, consulting and environmental audit, applied research and project management; innovative companies belonging to the green economy. Admission Procedure Admission to the Dual Degree in Environmental Science and Policy follows the rules of the Dual Degree admission procedure as described online.

Master Governing the Large Metropolis

Campus Full time 2 years September 2017 France Paris

The Master's programme Governing the Large Metropolis aims to prepare graduates for work on public policy issues in a variety of large metropolises beyond Europe, in relation to different types of organizations and agencies. [+]

Master Governing the Large Metropolis Programme objectives The Master's programme Governing the Large Metropolis aims to prepare graduates for work on public policy issues in a variety of large metropolises beyond Europe, in relation to different types of organizations and agencies. The world cities and urban sprawl of both the global North and the global South face massive public policy and governance challenges. The scale and speed of urbanization raise a plethora of issues, which are all covered in the programme. These include: economic development, poverty and slums, housing, health, technological and social innovation, the management of risk, infrastructure, water and waste disposal, changing labour markets, sustainable development, democratic participation. Governing populations divided and organized by class, income, religion, ethnic origin, mobility and/or gender has become even more difficult in a globalizing world where opportunities for mobility, participation in overlapping networks, interdependence and the scale of large urban regions make classic territorial conceptions of government and public policies partly obsolete. Students receive rigorous methodological training, experience from international professionals and exposure to high level academic content. The programme is taught entirely in English with a great emphasis on issues of comparative study. No ready made recipes are provided, and no simple fairy stories on the so called "best practices of good governance": the programme trains the students with a strong critical approach and management skills so as to be competent for project accounting and decision making to implement urban policy in critical environments. Systematic relations are built with urban professionals and research groups, including cities such as Bogotà, Lima, Mexico, Rio, Sao Paulo, Lagos, Beijing, Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Istanbul, Cairo, New Delhi, Shanghai, Tokyo and Johannesburg. Going beyond geography, development studies and physical planning, the Master's programme aims at training young professionals who will take charge of public policy design and implementation in the governance of large cities in the future. Main orientations and specific features The two-year programme comprises a mix of sound interdisciplinary theoretical courses, case studies, methods and professional training: Theoretical training focuses on public policy, sociology, governance, law, economics, demography, risk and globalization, centering on issues such as housing, migration, food security, utilities, climate change, informal economy, local finance, conflict management, transports, cultural policies, and the digital city; Professional training is provided in the first year through a group project (capstone) commissioned by a private or public organization, which involves doing applied research in the urban field. Students work 1.5 days a week for six months with a professional tutor. Students also take advantage of a planned study trip to a large urban center (past cities include Cairo, Istanbul, Casablanca/Tangier/Rabat). Case studies and workshops are taught by professionals; Solid methodological training in advanced quantitative and qualitative analysis, network analysis, map work, ecological data mining, and GIS training; In the second semester, regional training focuses on specific area of expertise, with historical insights on urban change. Students have to chose among African Metropolis, Arab and Mediterranean Metropolis, Asian Metropolis, Latin American Metropolis, and North American Metropolis; In the final semester, students will either undertake an internship of at least 14 weeks in a large metropolis or will spend the semester within a partner university, where they will prepare a research thesis (for those envisaging a PhD). During the whole duration of the programme, students are assisted in their course and professional orientation through a regular vocational statement exercise. The programme works in collaboration with other programmes from the Urban School. It also has a close link with research conducted at Sciences Po, notably with the research program "Cities are back in town". Career opportunities Students will have opportunities to work in the following organisations: UN organisations; Environment, health, security and food organisations; Global utility firms (water, transport, waste disposals, energy); NGO's in different sectors (democratic governance, environment, housing, development, culture…); Urban planning agencies, economic development agencies, urban political organisations; Networks of cities (C40, ICLEI etc..); Urban and regional governments; Private foundations and think tanks; Private developers and international consultants in the large metropolis.

Master in Economic Law The Master in Economic Law is a two-year program. The application procedure is exactly the same as for other Master programs at Sciences Po, with the identical tuition fees, deadline and scholarships. Teaching method Courses in the master in Economic Law are designed in a gradual fashion, so that students, even without any specific legal knowledge prior to admission, can become familiar with the required techniques. Thus, first semester classes will essentially cover core concepts, while later semesters will gradually evolve towards specialized and practical bodies of law. To implement this incremental approach, first year courses are taught by academics, while second year courses are mostly taught by professionals. The Sciences Po Law School curriculum provides students with a firm handle of fundamental concepts of law, a deep comprehension of their theoretical underpinnings, and a clear understanding of their practical implications. Therefore, courses mainly rely on a teaching method that gives priority to debates between professors and students. This itself requires that classes be prepared by each student in advance, based on distributed handouts. This way, students acquire a global understanding of Law, along with experience in exposing and discussing various points of view. Emphasis is also laid on readings, analysis of decisions, research on concrete cases (past or current), contracts elaboration, etc. Organization of courses The master in Economic Law is a very intensive formation. Curriculum is structured in the following way: During the first year fundamentals of law and economic law are taught to acquire or reinforce an indispensable legal culture; The second year is optional, students may take a gap year and become interns in law firms, companies or public services, considering that practical experience is absolutely necessary in law studies; In the final year, students have to choose their specialization among the six that have been created. Each of them is specific, oriented towards different technical profiles, for distinct professional aspirations and different ways of practicing law. [-]

Master in Human Rights and Humanitarian Action

Campus Full time 2 years September 2017 France Paris

Over the past decades, human rights have known a singular development that upsets the traditional Westphalian order of the world. [+]

Master in Human Rights and Humanitarian Action General objectives Over the past decades, human rights have known a singular development that upsets the traditional Westphalian order of the world. Human rights are often perceived as the panacea of the many ills that convulse today's global society: failing aid to development, impunity, corruption, social injustice, indignity, insecurity… Omnipresent, they are no longer the exclusive matter of international advocacy NGOs: governments, intergovernmental organizations, corporations, development agencies, local organizations working in the fields of health, education, environmental protection, labour… are and will be confronted with the exacting demands of human rights discourse. This cannot be truer than in the field of humanitarian action which has also known (unsurprisingly) a formidable expansion in parallel. This intertwining of human rights and humanitarian action would seem natural but is not in fact historically based, and is both intellectually and pragmatically challenging. Main orientations and specific feature The Master in Human Rights and Humanitarian Action programme provides students with a unique blend of core social science approaches (philosophy, history, sociology, anthropology) to humanitarianism and human rights intended to deconstruct the intuitive familiarity between the two fields and renew the debate concerning the universalism and political neutrality of human rights and humanitarian action through empirical study. It also offers indispensable courses in international law and global/regional institutional frameworks and advocacy skills. The teaching and learning objective is to give students the tools for strong analytical contextualisation that gives both depth and breadth to the issues and stakes in human rights and humanitarian action and that enable students to make the 'right decision at the right moment' when undertaking action on the ground. Going beyond the offerings of a typical LLM human rights programme or the more professionally oriented 'humanitarian' programmes. Another unique element of the programme is an emphasis on the "French" approach to humanitarian action and human rights while incorporating the pragmatic, judicial American approach to the field. Depending on their career goals, students will specialise during their second year in either the field of human rights or humanitarian action. Career opportunities Master of Human Rights and Humanitarian Action graduates may consider a variety of careers: NGOs, the diplomatic corps/national administrations, international organisations, journalism, and with a prior qualifying course of study, law (practising lawyer, international and regional courts of justice).

Student testimonial " The dual degree “Politikwissenschaften- Affaires Internationales” at Sciences Po Paris and FU Berlin offers the chance to study in two different university systems in two outstanding European cities – Paris and Berlin. As I am very interested in international energy politics, I specialized in International Energy at Sciences Po Paris. While the classes were very practice-oriented and focused on economic aspects, I can now focus on a broader range of political sciences topics at FU Berlin. However, it is still possible to pick courses relating to the specialization I pursued at Sciences Po. Of course, the different approaches in France and Germany can be quite a challenge, but I personally consider them an opportunity to approach topics differently. Besides, I strongly recommend taking advantage from the possibilities students have to get involved in activities beyond University, which also help to sharpen the professional and academic profile." Lilly Höhn Dual degree Sciences Po - Freie Universität Berlin The Alumni Association The “Association Gerhard Kiersch Verein” (AGKV) was founded in 1995. Its name is intended to preserve the memory of a Professor at the Otto-Suhr-Institut , who initiated the Franco-German dual degree between Sciences Po and Freie Universität Berlin in the early 1980s. It brings together current students of the program and alumni to build a strong European network through its links with stakeholders in the political, economic, social and cultural sphere. In fact, many alumni currently work in diverse sectors including international organizations, the media, public services, business, consulting and research. This is a dual degree with Freie Universität Berlin. [-]

Energy supply is and will remain a major development challenge for developing and developed countries alike. PSIA's International Energy program responds rigorously to a growing worldwide demand in energy expertise, with a cutting-edge curriculum, internship program, and active series of public lectures and events with industry and government leaders. Graduates enter the global job market with a strong international outlook and an incomparable understanding of complex interrelations between different issues, actors and technological solutions. Scientific Advisor Giacomo Luciani is the Scientific Advisor of the Master in International Energy. He is also a Princeton University Global Scholar; Visiting Professor at PSIA and at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva. Giacomo Luciani founded and directed the Institute for Research on International Economics. His research interests include Political economy of the Middle East and North Africa and Geopolitics of energy. His work has focused primarily on the economic and political dynamics of rentier states and issues of development in the GCC countries. Professor Giacomo Luciani teaches a Sciences Po MOOC entitled "Politics and Economics of International Energy". Main orientations and specific features In short, energy supply and use will remain at the center of the political debate internationally as well as nationally. Creation of a single European energy market remains a major challenge for the Union, and has profound consequences on its external relations. Energy policies need to be adopted at the national and subnational level, and be coordinated internationally. Career opportunities Governments, financial institutions, policy studies, think tanks and the media seek professionals with sufficient technical knowledge of energy issues to raise the debate. Energy companies, increasingly numerous and diverse, need public policy experts to advise on political and social acceptability of technological solutions and business strategies. Career openings include private enterprises, research institutes, international organizations, banks, consulting and multinational firms. [-]

Master in International Public Management General objectives Market dynamics, economic globalization, financing development, environment, corruption, financial crime, regional Integration, cultural diversity and trade, education… These key global policy Issues of the day - to name a few - are protean and at the intersection of local, national, international and global interests. This inherent complexity is amplified by the ever growing number of actors involved in decision-making process. The Master in International Public Management is intended for students who are interested in careers in international public service that rely on advisory and advocacy skills in order to facilitate and coordinate the formulation of global policy. It aims more generally at training policy makers with the capacity to operate in a variety of cultural contexts in addressing issues of international range. The program provides students with a variety of tools for policy analysis essential to becoming key players in the decision-making process at the international and global level. Although it is possible to undertake the Management public international / International Public Management Master program without it, important prior work experience in the field or a specialised undergraduate course of study (law, business, engineering …) is an asset for placement for graduates of the programme. Security, migration, health and so many other fields of our globalized world need first-class and highly trained managers with an intrinsic spirit of leadership. The PSIA program in International Public Management strives to prepare global public managers to fulfil that role across continents. Ghassan Salamé, Dean of PSIA International Public Management Graduate Class of '13 Anjuli Pandit reflects on her time at PSIA, and how it prepared her for great professional challenges. Scientific Advisor Richard Balme is professor of political science at Sciences Po, Paris School of International Affairs, and research fellow at the Centre d’Etudes Europeennes (CEE). He also teaches at the School of Public Policy and Management of Tsinghua University, Beijing. He teaches and researches comparative public policy and international relations. Among his recent publications are Collective Action and European Democracy. Power and Protest in the EU (With D. Chabanet). Rowman and Littlefield 2008.Europe-Asia Relations: Building Multilateralisms (With B. Bridges). Palgrave 2008..“Central-Local Relations and Innovation in Environmental Policy-Making: Comparative Perspectives”, a special issue of Environmental Policy and Governance, 2014 (With Qi Ye, Eds). Smart Grids Applications and Developments. London, Springer Verlag, 2014 (With Li V., Hills P., Mah D., Eds). Main orientations and specific features Depending on their career aspirations and in relation to the type of institution in which they aspire to work – local and national administrations, notably the diplomatic corps, intergovernmental and governmental organisations or transnational firms – students have the possibility to chart a personalised course of study in the IPM programme. Courses are provided in three main areas: International Organizations and Global Governance; Public Policy: Theory and Analysis; and Policy Management and Leadership. Students may choose to concentrate on one global issue or else study several contemporary global issues in which State sovereignty and multilateralism are both seen as struggling to find an appropriate policy response. In order to contextualise the interplay of actors students also have the choice to focus on the study of established and emerging non-State players or on the dynamics of interactions at the international and global levels through the study of leadership, the sociology of international relations or intercultural management. Europe as a key regional player is not forgotten. Lastly, students may acquire and develop operational, concrete skills in a number of domains: analysis and evaluation of public policy, information systems, legal writing, crisis communication and advocacy, and diplomatic practices. Careers opportunities Management public international / International Public Management students may typically consider careers in local, national or international administrations, in intergovernmental and non-governmental organisations or in transnational firms, working in domains such as international cooperation, development or new public-private sector partnerships.
