Graduate Studies at Sciences Po

On the path of excellence

Students in an auditoriumOver the years, Sciences Po has adapted its Master's Programme to the increasingly diverse range of career openings and recruiter requirements, while allowing students to prepare effectively for their entry into professional life. Sciences Po proposes a wide range of programmes, each of which corresponds to professional orientations for which our graduates are particularly well prepared.
Some 75% of Sciences Po graduates work in the private sector, 20% in French, European and international public administrations and 5% in teaching and research.

Three semesters in Paris at Sciences Po, one semester off campus

The programme of study consists of four semesters, each lasting thirteen weeks. Students must carry out an internship or an exchange programme in one of Sciences Po's partner universities.

A multidisciplinary education

In addition to the course curriculum of the specific programme, students also benefit from a wide range of added courses in core subjects such as economics, human rights and liberties, the major European challenges and organization theory as well as the links between society, policy and science. The teaching of these fundamental disciplines provides a strong structural framework both in terms of conceptual content and methodological rigor and are a staple of the Sciences Po's graduate education.

An international experience

Sciences Po has signed dual degree conventions with several major universities throughout the world. Each year, these programmes enable students selected by both institutions to complete one year of studies at Sciences Po and another at the partner institution, with a degree awarded by both universities.
