About the dual Bachelor’s degree with UC Berkeley

Two years in France, two years in California

Students in the dual degree programme spend their first two years at one of three Sciences Po campuses in France (Menton, Reims or Le Havre), each of which focuses on a different world region. All instruction is offered in English. The last two years of the programme are spent on the UC Berkeley campus.

Students graduate from both universities

After successfully completing the programme, students receive a Sciences Po Bachelor’s degree in the Social Sciences and Humanities and a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree from UC Berkeley’s College of Letters and Science.
